Well one place that certainly made me happy to eat at and feel that I wasn’t straying too far from my new healthy convictions was a food truck in Portland Oregon called “‘ Wolf and Bear’s “.
We had been watching one of our favorite food programs ” Eat Street” on the Food Network, a show about food trucks far and wide, and knew we’d be passing through Portland in a couple of weeks and wanted to check it out!
I was even more thrilled to find that it was located in the East Burnside area which is always a favorite eating area for the Chef and I when we are in Portland. Tucked into a little vacant lot on SE 28th avenue, just off Burnside with a few other inviting food trucks is a little oasis of delicious.
I was so excited to order the: OLEA – Wolf’s homemade kalamata tapenade, labneh, grilled eggplant, roasted red peppers, grilled red onions, gorgonzola crumbles, caramelized walnuts, freshly cracked pepper, salad greens drizzled with tahini sauce and olive oil on a warm pita.
The Chef declared that he wanted the same one! Which would normally make me shift my choice so that we can both taste more than one thing, but on this occasion, I wouldn’t budge and nor would he so we had one each!
Everything is fresh made to order and is well worth the wait.
When our name was called and we picked up our sandwiches they also handed us a wonderful little dish of mixed olives and pickled peppers to go with them! A perfect Middle Eastern combo!
It was a glorious warm summer night as we sat in the court yard and ate our sandwiches and pickles and sipped our lemonades. What a wonderful treat!
Thanks Wolf and Bear!
