I read on Wikipedia (a reliable source for all kinds of knowledge!) that Portland is one of the most vegetarian-friendly cities in the USA. So of course, I was excited to see what I'd find to eat when I was there.
One really unique feature of Portland's restaurant scene is the food carts. There are dozens of them, serving pretty much every cuisine you could imagine, and it's pretty much all cooked fresh to order.
There's a disadvantage to this informal style: we queued for ages by one stall, only to be told when we reached the front of the line that they'd run out of veggie ingredients.
In the end, I paid $6 for a huge helping of Thai satay tofu and vegetables - very tasty, and a fun way to eat out once in a while.
