My family and I were visiting Portland for a brief holiday, and the AirBnb we were staying at in the Southeast side of town had helpful advice and tips from our host and from their previous guests. What stuck out prominently was their praises for the Food Truck picnic area on Division and 28. So we decided to walk over there on our first night in town. We were not disappointed and it lived up to all the praises we read.
The place is what Portlanders call a "food cart pod" which is really a cluster of food trucks of varying cuisines, with a picnic area in the middle with picnic tables and a small heating pit to keep diners warm during cold nights. Not all were open, but the ones that were offered a fairly wide range of cuisines, from pizzas, Greek gyros, healthy wraps, unhealthy hotdogs, Korean-Hawaiian dishes, vegan and gluten free offerings and one with a pretty wide selection of beers. We settled on pizza, hotdogs, Thai pineapple fried rice and a few more Thai dishes (actually the latter from Pok Pok, a highly rated Thai restaurant a few blocks away). We also had a few pints of a really good Belgian lager. The wide offerings reminded me of the parallelism this place has with typical food courts around Southeast Asia, where similarly diners have a wide range of offererings, though because of the heat and humidity, they are typically indoors.
The food at Tidbit was really very good, as was the lager. It was a real picnic sitting on picnic benches outdoors on a nice spring evening with the weather starting to warm up.
If I make it back to Portland, I will be back for more.
