Lunch at Addy’s Sandwich Bar
Justin and I have committed to stop being such punks and start to explore the many many food carts Portland has to offer. When we had dinner at Beast, one of our table mates told us about the Duck Confit sandwich at Addy’s, and since then it’s been on our minds. Monday was a gorgeous sunny day in Portland, and after we each had our own mornings, we met up at Addy’s for lunch.
We took a stroll around the block to check out some other carts, and after a bit of wait in line, sidled up to the window. We decided to split the Duck Confit and Country Pate sandwiches, though the Chocolate, Sea Salt & Olive Oil was definitely hard to pass up.
We sat in the sunshine and REALLY enjoyed the sandwiches. The Duck Confit was served with cranberry relish and shredded cabbage, which added a nice tartness and crunch to the smooth confit.
The Country Pate was served with mini gherkins and some spicy mustard - it wasn’t as offal-y as other pate I’ve had, but still had some rich meatiness, and the mustard added a nice strong spice to it, while the pickles gave it a sweet tang.
We kept going back and forth on which sandwich was our favorite, and pretty much gave up since they were both so good. A frozen yogurt cart guy gave us some free samples and with that, we had a lovely meal for under $12 for the two of us.
The really great thing about Portland is its abundance of food carts - we’ve decided that Monday is going to be food cart day, and we already have a list of carts we want to hit up. A lot of carts are on twitter and offer up specials for their followers or tweet their location.
Speaking of which, you should probably start following us on twitter. Maybe we’ll give away some free soup or something!
