New Tropical Vegan Food Cart Opening in Portland This March
Shark’s Cove—a Hawaiian-themed food cart—is joining the new CORE (Collective Oregon Eatery) cart pod and food hall this March. CORE houses seventeen food carts and trucks and boasts an expansive indoor dining hall complete with a bar that serves drinks inspired by each of the food carts.
Shark’s Cove joins the pod from an educational standpoint. Owner Kayla Lamberson has an extensive background in activism and marine conservation and is hoping to bring awareness to the negative impacts that factory farming and commercial fishing have on our environment. Shark’s Cove will post conservation information on their social media channels, and has plans to donate to ocean nonprofits via fundraisers and specials.
The cart will be serving up jackfruit nachos, burgers with pineapple and teriyaki, banana and macadamia pancakes, and teriyaki tempeh mango bowls. Lamberson is even working on a vegan loco moco with a house-made gravy and house-made “fried egg.”
Cayla has been writing for VegOut since 2020 and has been plugged into the LA vegan food scene since Veggie Grill was pretty much the only vegan restaurant in the city. Aside from writing articles, Cayla enjoys embracing their inner 85-year-old by listening to classical music, making playlists for their friends, and staying active through swimming, hiking, cycling, and yoga. In their free time, Cayla likes writing poetry, learning about outdoor survival and alternative lifestyles, and is always searching for the best loaf of sourdough bread.
