We’ve thought about opening a food truck in Baltimore, but with my driving skills, it’s better off I stay as far away from any vehicle bigger than a Toyota Camry. Not that I’m a bad driver, I’m a SAFE driver – I’d say most people would trust me to chauffeur around their grannies and babies. I take that as a compliment even if most people don’t. HAHA. I don’t know why I get made fun of for driving at speed limit and with both hands on the wheel. đŸ˜‰ I remember a few years ago, I was driving behind my brother (this was before everyone had GPS or SATNAVs in their cars) and he calls me and says ‘Where are you?!?!?! We’ve been at the restaurant waiting for you for over an hour.’ har har har very funny ‘Oh Stop it, you know I’m right behind you, I don’t drive that slow!’

So anyway, goodbye food truck idea in Baltimore! You know where I’d fit in perfectly though? Portland! They have a huge food cart culture (food carts are smaller than food trucks) and Oregonians drive pretty slow, like me đŸ˜€ There are more than 600 food carts in Portland – street food lovers’ paradise! You don’t have to constantly check twitter to see where your favorite food truck would be parked today. In Portland, there are designated blocks for clusters of food carts called ‘pods’ that they can call home. It’s like Baltimore’s gathering but everyday! (more…)
