Dinger’s Deli Makes a Comeback in Portland
Longtime Portland vegans will remember the iconic Dinger’s Deli food cart. Since 2018, Brian Steadham of Dinger’s Deli has been serving up vegan sandwiches and hoagies with homemade vegan meats. Dinger’s Deli spent a lot of time as a pop-up at Century Bar and had a longtime residence at The Bite on Belmont food cart pod.
In the summer of 2021, Steadham announced that Dinger’s Deli would be going on a hiatus while he changed up some of the gears of his business. This month, Steadham announced a return to the Portland vegan food scene.
Steadham teamed up with Fortune PDX, a vegan bar and restaurant inside the Sentinel Hotel, to create an entirely new vegan menu for the restaurant. And for those missing the iconic Dinger’s Deli Cuban sandwich, you can now find it at Fortune PDX for a limited time.
Fortune PDX Gets a Fresh Vegan Menu
Fortune PDX is open Sunday-Thursday from 4pm-12am and Fridays and Saturdays from 4pm-2am. Resident DJs will play Thursdays-Sundays, with live Jazz on Wednesdays. True to its name, the restaurant also offers a Fortune teller every Friday night.
The menu features elevated vegan bar food, such as mozzarella sticks, grilled sandwiches, and nachos. Steadham also teamed up with several other Portland-based brands for a local vegan charcuterie board that you’re not going to want to miss. Dinger’s Deli vegan meats, Vtopia vegan cheese, and Thrilling Foods vegan bacon round out this epic charcuterie board.
