Although it's listed on TA as a "Restaurant", Tidbit is more of a culinary adventure packed neatly into a cozy block in inner SouthEast; it's about TWENTY different restaurants in one! Opened in late 2014 on a formerly vacant lot along a busy and booming stretch of SE Division (@ SE 28th), Tidbit is among the best of the cart pods in all of Portland.
We've been at least five times now and have tried a different cart each time. From Japaneses ramen and Hawaiian kalua pork to Dutch waffles to sloppy burgers, sausages and wood-fired pizzas --- this pod has it all. Great cuisine choices all around (where else can you try Belizean food right next to Scandinavian, Thai & Indian?!?!?) and a wonderful gravel-covered courtyard with split-timber benches and a fire pit plus plenty of picnic tables (under cover or in the open - it's an all-weather place).
Family-friendly, kid-friendly, easy on the wallet. Most places prefer cash (there's an ATM on site) and there's more than just food! Lodekka (a second-hand clothing store in a refurbished doubledecker bus), Menagerie (jewelry) and Dragonfly Monet (flowers) are examples. There's also a seasonal produce stand (Parsons Farms) and a cart called "Scout" that sells beer/cider to the over-21 crowd. My personal favorite: the house-made sodas at Pyro's Wicked Sandwiches - seasonal flavors like cucumber lime, classics like root beer and natural cola and cherry phosphate - try them all or mix your own. $2 for a cup then $0.50 refills all night!
Enough outta me - just go and enjoy! Highly recommended!
