Cheap Eats: Off The Griddle in Southeast Portland | OregonLive.com

As cart pods go, the À La Carts Food Pavilion just south of the intersection of Southeast 50th Avenue and Division Street is as posh as they come. The lot's surface is spotless; there's ample covered seating for chilly, rainy days. And the food options range from Venezuelan, Mexican and Thai cuisine to down-home barbecue. One of the most interesting carts is this solar-powered veggie burger cart, featuring vegetarian and vegan burgers made entirely using renewable energy. It doesn't get more Portland than that!

The chow: Most of the burgers are built on a vegan, gluten-free patty made of leeks, mushrooms and Bob's Red Mill wild and brown rice, which has a wonderfully nutty flavor and just the right level of seasoning. For just $5.50, you can get that patty topped simply with lettuce, onions and tomatoes, on a Dave's Killer Bread whole wheat bun.
