'food carts' on Serious Eats

First Look: My Sweet Lil Cakes, Seattle

She's passionate about food and proud of her Puerto Rican lineage. He's passionate about people and a former concierge at some of Seattle's finest hotels. Together, Sheena Lee Fuson and Jesse Lee Marshall make a cute couple, dressing as soda jerks and selling sweet (and savory) pancakes on sticks out of a tangerine-colored mobile kitchen. More

Hangover Helper: Egg Zeppelin at Fried Egg I'm in Love in Portland, OR

1970s rock gods Jimmy Page and Robert Plant embodied one characteristic above all else: excess. And the aptly named Egg Zeppelin ($8) at the Fried Egg I'm in Love (sensing a pattern here?) food cart on SE Hawthorne in Portland mirrors its namesake's penchant for overkill with a fat, salty, spicy stack of eggs, sausage, cheese, and hot sauce designed to transform your groans of agony into sighs of delight.

Portland, OR: Marginal Thumbs-Up for Lardo's Double Burger, Big Thumbs-Up for the Fries

One of Portland's best food carts, Lardo puts out some of the tastiest (and, it should be noted, saltiest) sandwiches in the city. Having sampled a number of these over the past few months, I had to know if owner Rick Gencarelli's Double Burger, at a mere eight bucks, could qualify as one of Portland's best burger deals. The answer depends on how high your standards have been set. More

Off the Grid: San Francisco's Expanding Mobile Food Market

Off the Grid, San Francisco's mobile food truck market, has expanded in its second year to ten weekly events in nine locations (including San Mateo and Berkeley), six days a week. Check out photos of all 23 foods we tried from the market. And if you find yourself in the Bay Area September 10th or 17th, you can catch the final two weeks of Off the Grid's extra-special event at Golden Gate Fields for the largest gathering of mobile food trucks in Northern California.

Hangover Helper: The "Kick Flip" at Pig Vicious, Austin

I suppose the "Kick Flip" at Austin's Pig Vicious cart is a quesadilla, but it's different (and overstuffed) enough to count as something different. Scrambled eggs and bits of thick, chewy bacon, with jalapeño for heat, guacamole for smooth substance, and just enough of a ranch-like dressing to bind it together, not make it taste ranch-like at all.

A Sandwich A Day: The 'Phyllis' at The Local Yolk in Austin, TX

Avocado and cream cheese had never occured to me as elements of an egg sandwich, but now that I've had it I'm a huge fan. At Austin's The Local Yolk cart, the "Phyllis" ($7) stacks those ingredients in precise, even layers—a slim fried egg that's just barely set in the middle, buttery, even slices of avocado, and a substantial layer of cream cheese—between slices of white bread that gets a great crunch to counter the soft middle.
