Leftover Food


This is another drawing I did of the food carts in Portland. The food carts are located in little pockets throughout the city. There might be 20 or 30 carts on one corner and then 3 blocks away are another 20. I couldn't decide which cart to draw, so like an idiot I kept walking back and forth between the different areas that had the carts. I was spending more time walking back and forth trying to scope out the perfect cart than I was drawing. So I threw up my hands in surrender, plunked myself down in front of this sucker and drew the damn thing. I'm not sure why this food cart had it's phone number displayed. I didn't see any take-out action going on at all. My only guess, it that people call in their order in advance and then just pick it up at the window. Maybe someone form Portland can explain to me what that is all about.

I am addicted to Thai food.
My favorite is ไก่ผัดเม็ดมะม่วง (Gai Pad Med Mamuang)which is "Stir-Fried Chicken with Cashew Nuts". When I order it, I say "Number 5" and point at it in the menu.

The guy in the food truck next door seems to be saying an F!!Maybe hes not too keen on watching you draw.

I agree. I think the guy next door wasn't happy with all the walking around and not buying anything.

Yes, for those people with only 30 minute lunches, you can call in your lunch order and go pick it up. We also have a company called Portland Pedal Power. They will go get your food cart order and deliver it to you by bicycle.

Howdy! I could have sworn I've been to this website before but after browsing through many of the articles I realized it's new to me.
Nonetheless, I'm definitely happy I discovered it and I'll be book-marking
it and checking back frequently!
