PORTLAND, Ore. -- Soccer and food carts. It doesn't get more Portland.
Already famous for its bike lanes, microbrews and rain, the Pacific Northwest city has also become home to a vibrant food cart scene.
So it follows that the Timbers, known for being part of Portland's culture as well as embracing it, are featuring food cart cuisine at several home matches this season.
At a recent rivalry match against the Vancouver Whitecaps, the Timbers nodded to soccer's European roots by featuring a taste of the Frying Scotsman food cart. The fare was naturally cod `n chips or haddock `n chips. Chef James King is the real deal, hailing from on the west coast of Scotland.
This Friday night the Timbers will host southwestern cuisine from Pepper Box.
