Dalo’s Ethiopian Kitchen: Portland’s Top 10 new food cart survey

Dalo's SambusaPortland, Oregon - Dalo’s Ethiopian Kitchen isn’t the first restaurant to branch out with a food cart — Shigezo, the Japanese restaurant, opened the excellent ramen cart, Minizo, for example — but the North Portland restaurant gets points for nailing their simple, inexpensive cart concept right out of the gate.

There might not be a more satisfying $5 meal in Portland right now than the mixed vegan platter, with its red lentil and split pea stews, called wat, alongside gently sautéed spinach and rolls of injera flatbread as mildly sour as the dosas at Tiffin Asha.

It’s only a few months old, but fans have already discovered Dalo’s cart. On a recent sunny afternoon, the picnic tables at the brand-new Central Eastside cart pod were full of people eating wat and sambusas, the crisp, chewy Ethiopian-style samosas stuffed with lentils and onions, from Dalo’s white boxes.
