This was a really cool way to experience the feel of Portland. We had so many options so it was hard to choose what to eat. We went with the grilled cheese truck and it was Amazing!!!

In a sea of generalized Middle Eastern food choices, if you dine for just one time at Food Carts, locate and enjoy the Mawj Iraqi Cuisini...if you dine and seek a change...dine at Mawj Iraqi Cuisini.

If you aren't coming to these trucks, then you're wasting your money. Great food at even greater prices, and you'll get a chance to try foods from cultures all over the world. Really enjoyed these things; ate here daily.

Tons of food carts! So many choices. Clearly targeted at hipsters and a little overpriced, but creative dishes available. Big drawback, nowhere to sit at all.
