Portland, Oregon – the city that popularized gourmet food trucks and is now dotted with hundreds of them – has food trucks at the airport.
Koi Fusion and Pok Pok are the first two food cart operators to open at Portland International Airport. Three other food carts will arrive later this year – with each cart getting a six-month stint to give other local businesses the opportunity to participate.
The first two trucks to roll in are great examples of the local fare: Koi Fusion is a Korean-style BBQ with a Mexican influence.
Pok Pok,– which also has popular spots in Portland and New York – is known for spicy Thai cuisine and chicken wings.
Another piece of good news – PDX has a street pricing policy, so the food served at the airport food trucks costs the same as it does out in the city.
