Our favorite food cart in Portland just opened a second cart and that means another menu for us to design!
We finally had a chance to take a leave of absence from the home offices and travel down to Portland for a visit with our good friends at Fried Egg I’m In Love.
Lucky, lucky us. We again had the good fortune of joining Seattle’s only (and best!) mobile food tour as it added a local band to the mix for a night of indie pop, mouthwatering eats and a four-wheeled foray up, down and all about town and into some of Seattle’s best kept culinary secrets.
We’re firm believers that White Moustache gastro-guide Bryce Lathrop is one part Bacchanalian storyteller, two parts food anthropologist and three parts epicurean shaman. Meaning, he has the epicure for all that ails you and you’ll emerge from your food coma two days later boasting some anecdotal food history to boot. In a perfect interlacing of the senses, he invited one of our favorite up-and-coming bands OK Sweetheart to serenade a busload of gleefully gluttonous traveling tastebuds. Bryce played raconteur and the band played songs sweeter than milk and honey and everyone filled their bellies with cupcakes, barbecue, fried pickles and heaven.
Take a look at the video above (or the shorter videos below) for a glimpse at the night.
If you like what you see, don’t hesitate to purchase tickets for the next Musical Plates food tour!
We at The Art Dept. love food. Even more so now that one of us is pregnant. And we’re really digging this food truck and street food revolution happening up and down the West Coast. Truly amazing chefs are putting their hearts and souls into these accessible mobile marvels for the masses.
So, when our friend Jace—the musician behind one of our favorite NW bands Fort Union—approached us to create a logo for his brand new Portland food truck, he had us at “fried.” Our creative juices began eagerly flowing (along with a fair amount of saliva.)
