A night of caching

Daveydude and Biggieet_al were in town today. I met them downtown. We tried an Egyptian food cart for dinner and then went and found a few geocaches and a munzee.

Here is Kelly waiting for his Gyro at the Gyro House. I enjoyed my food. Kelly found a piece of plastic in his... like from a produce bag. That was after they forgot his order so Dave and I were left waiting for him. It was a busy place since they were one of the only carts open at the time. I'd try it again.

After that we found

Grab a Cache, Grab Some Lunch, Part Deux
Grimm Season 2 5 The Good Shepherd
Top Score

The last one was a really old Virtual in a cool retro arcade/bar. Played a game of Frogger and called it a night.

6 Months... of food carts

Tonight marks 6 months since I moved to Portland. I haven't done much geocaching, but I have ate at a lot of food carts. Maybe I should just make this a food cart blog... here are a few of the most recent

Kargi Gogo is a Georgian food cart. That's Georgia as in a country between Russia and Turkey that was part of the former Soviet Union. I had the khinkali which are dumplings full of beef and pork. You can't really go wrong with that... and they were pretty good. I think I'd like to try the cheese bread as well.

This is Portland Masala which is an Indian food cart. SallyC actually introduced me to Indian food and I have been a fan ever since. This place sells packaged Indian food in super markets... then they decided to open a cart. I had the chicken curry and the lamb curry. It is a good amount of food for the money and it was pretty tasty as well.

I tried Island Grill Hawaiian Barbeque just today. This is a Hawaiian food cart. I had BBQ chicken with macaroni salad and rice. It was good, next time I'll probably try the teriyaki chicken as just the BBQ was kind of plain even for me... and I like stuff plain. I'm still looking for a Hawaiian place with Korean chicken as good at North Shore Hawaiian Plate in Klamath Falls.
