PORTLAND From Bangkok to Brussels to Portland, you can find great food sold on the street and Budget Travel s Web site ranked the Rose City as the best place to eat it in the whole world.
The travel Web site did a survey to find the best city for food cart culture and Portland earned the top spot.
The survey took into account food quality, lunchtime crowds, late-night snacking options and the overall culture.
With more than 400 carts selling everything from Korean tacos to Carolina-style barbecue, Portland is a microcosm of mobile meals. Lunchtime crowds gather near SW 10th Avenue and SW Alder Street; later on, night owls head across the river to SE 12th Avenue and SE Hawthorne Boulevard for deep-fried cherry pies and savory crepes, served until 2 a.m., reporter Marisa Robertson-Textor wrote, in the online article.
Los Angeles earned the No. 2 spot and Philadelphia was ranked No. 4. All the other cities in the top 10 were outside the United States. Click here to see the entire list
