Street Food

Do you know who holds the competition? Is it the city? I loved the carts in Madison. They were all painted bright colors and really well spaced out.

Right. But I would like to think that we're becoming more imaginative than the hot dog. It seems to me that if street food is in fact becoming more popular in certain cities (such as in Portland, OR where I live) that there is a segment of the population that is interested in eating at these sorts of establishments. Let me know.

Street Food

I'm interested in hearing about cities with growing food cart presence. I live in Portland, OR and am definitely seeing a growing trend in the number of food carts that are popping up. I used to live in NYC, where street food is prolific. But, other than the obvious cities, I'd love to find out where else you're seeing that trend. I've heard that Austin, TX has a pretty good street food scene. And I was struck when travelling cross country at the number of food carts in Madison, WI, of all places. I've travelled globally in the last year, to Morocco and Mexico, where street food is definitely part of the daily grind. It would be interesting to find out the trends here in the U.S.
