Portland’s Vegan Food Cart Dirty Lettuce to Open Brick-and-Mortar Location
Comfort cuisine food cart—Dirty Lettuce—has brought Portland to its feet. Its Mississippi-driven vegan menu has solidified a loyal following in just a matter of months since opening in 2020, and now, owner Alkebulan Moroski has announced plans for a brick-and-mortar. Opening in late April 2021, the permanent restaurant will make roots on NE Fremont and offer an expanded menu thanks to the greatly enhanced space. While beloved for its veganized Cajun fare such as Southern-style greens and tofu fried chicken, Moroski intends to extend the offerings to include dishes from other cuisines like Korean barbecue or Italian-American hoagies.
In addition to the cart’s staple Infamous Bowls (Moroski’s take on KFC’s Famous Bowl) and vegan meat by the pound, the new space will host New Orleans jazz brunches on weekends. Moroski has just scratched the surface of their culinary talent with the cart, and a brand new kitchen (and hopefully a return to normal dining) will allow them to really show off what they can do.
The Dirty Lettuce food cart will continue serving Infamous Bowls and vegan po’boys in the Shady Pines Vegan Food Court while the restaurant is underway. For updates on the grand opening, follow Dirty Lettuce on Instagram (@dirty__lettuce).
Dirty Lettuce will be located at 4727 NE Fremont St, Portland, OR 97213.
