Lost Plate Food Tours, a local culinary tour company, launches its third route in Portland, Oregon. This tour focuses on the city’s incredible food carts and food cart pods. The tour visits a half-dozen of the area’s best food carts and food trucks while exploring Portland’s off-the-beaten-path Eastside neighborhoods with a local Portlander.
We want each stop to be part of a story that shares the highlights of Portland’s food scene, and hope guests walk away with a lot more than a full belly.Michelle Bergey – Co-Founder of Lost Plate Food Tours
“A lot of people visit Portland knowing that it has the country’s most vibrant food cart scene, but they don’t know where to start,” said Michelle Bergey, co-founder of Lost Plate Food Tours. “Our job is to show them where to go and give them an experience they’d never be able to have on their own.”
The tour, called “Portland Food Carts, Pods & Patio Tour” will visit 6 locally run food carts and offer a huge selection of diverse dishes. Guests will get the chance to meet food cart owners and learn a bit about their story while eating their dishes and drinking tasty beverages, including local craft beer.
Each tour is led by one of Lost Plate’s local guides, who will introduce the neighborhood while walking between each stop and give tips for where else to eat and drink in Portland.
Other Lost Plate tours include Portland Evening Food and Drink, Downtown Coffee and Donut Morning, Portland Private Dining, and now Portland Food Carts, Pods, and Patios. Tickets for the various tours are available through the website. Prices for the newest tour are $65.00 per person which includes all food and drinks enjoyed during the tour. Other tours range in price from $49.00 to $85.00 per person. The Private Dining tours vary in price depending on the specifics of the tour.
“Our job is to do far more than just feed people,” said Michelle. “We want each stop to be part of a story that shares the highlights of Portland’s food scene, and hope guests walk away with a lot more than a full belly.”
