Some recent press


Local food writer and blogger, Kathleen Bauer of  Good Stuff NW, wrote a piece on us for The Oregonian. She does a wonderful job telling our story and the motivations that drive (so to speak) our little food cart.

You can read it here. (Plus there’s the recipe for our summertime fave: pappa al pomodoro!)

Serious Eats, the online blog about all things seriously food, wrote about our food cart pod—which boasts a wonderful, superbly-curated variety of carts and food offerings (we know because we’ve eaten at all of them!). Nice input and insights from all the cart owners.

Read it here.

Our deepest gratitude to these writers for including us in their endeavors; and as always, we wouldn’t be here without the support from our wonderful customers–thank you!



Write-up in February’s Portland Monthly


We’re very happy to see this latest vote of confidence in print. And we’re so grateful for all the support and enthusiasm you wonderful Portland eaters have shown us over these past months. Thank you!

Here’s the link to the article:

Thank you, Portland

On this Giorno del Ringraziamento, the Burrasca family foursome is thankful for many things: health, family, and friends being at the top of the list.

But we are also so thankful for the warm welcome this wonderful city of Portland has shown us: in the kids’ new school, in new friendships, in enthusiastic and adventurous customers at the cart. It seems that everywhere we turn in the Rose City, the genuine friendliness of the locals and that all-round good vibe such openness and friendliness fosters renews our deep satisfaction with our choice to call this place home.

So in this spirit of gratitude, we’d like to extend sincere and warmest thanks to Portland Monthly and the Portland Mercury for two recent write-ups (see links below), and express our heartfelt thanks to the customers–regular and new–who come to see us at the cart, bringing their hearty appetites and encouragement. To borrow the phrase Steven Shomler of Portland Food Cart Adventures uses, YOU, dear customers, are what makes the food cart magic happen–at least for us.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!


Grazie di cuore,

Paolo, Elizabeth, Giacomo & Gemma
