“High End Sit Down Food at a Food Pod”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

We rarely eat at restaurants that don't serve food on plates and with real flatware. We were so pleasantly surprised to find that food at a Food Cart/Pod was being served and China with real flatware. Burrasca ranks up there with Portland's fine Italian Cuisine! 5 or so dishes that rotate with the seasons and not 1 a disappointment. The 5 at our visit were:

Farinata $6

thick soup of Italian kale, cannellini beans, leek, garlic & corn meal {vegan/gluten free}

Peposo $8

beef shank stewed in tomato, red wine & black pepper, served with polenta {gluten free}

Inzimino $7

squid slow-simmered in spinach, tomato and red wine, served with toasted bread

Tortelli $9

handmade potato-filled large ravioli with duck ragù {can be made vegetarian: with a butter and sage sauce instead – just ask!}

The Peposo and The Farinata were sublime. To top things off, we were allowed to sit in the adjacent wine shop (Vino) and drink a very reasonable Barbera.

A great value for under $28 at a Food Cart + Wine Shop What a value
