Moody Food Carts 2018


The Moody Ave Food Dock of 2018

Historical Lookback

Located at the south end of the South Waterfront, at 3786 SW Moody Ave, these former loading docks are now home to 6* food carts, which have become a regular lunchtime hotspot for those who live and work here.

Rip City Grill - the original, ever-popular, (and a favorite of several Blazers and Timbers players)

Hula Hut - In its latest iteration, the center cart previously known as Taste of Mexican Food (and before that Taste of a Gyro) is now "proud to serve fresh quality Hawaiian food". (Hint: try the fish tacos!)

Lets Eat Thai Food - I am a devoted regular customer.

Kai's Kitchen - teriyaki bowls (Kai's Kitchen is actually at the corner of Moody & Bancroft, not on the docks.)

The Sadona Coffee Co - espresso stand

Gyro Plus - new this summer

  • And WHEN will someone, anyone, open a neighborhood pub? Menu: burgers, salads, flatbread pizzas and local brews and wine... Not looking for anything fancy, just a regular pub fare lunch and dinner, family-friendly, watch the game, stop by after work for happy hour kind of place. I've heard this from so many neighbors over the years, but especially now.
