Awesome Cone, located at the D-Street Noshery food pod in Portland, Oregon, takes waffle cones to a new level. It's not ice cream or soft serve in those cones, we got real food here!
I had been eyeing this food cart for some time now, all because they have something called the "Pig Cone" ($6). It's a waffle cone stuffed with pulled pork (covered in a sweet, tangy BBQ sauce) and cole slaw.

The BBQ sauce here made a huge statement. It had the tones of sweet and tang, but it also brought a nice kick to the party...unexpected, but excellent. The juicy pulled pork and the cole slaw...a harmonious combination.
I love that Awesome Cone runs frequent specials. They even have a waffle cone stuffed with chicken and dumplings. Yes, I'd take one of each, and I wish I could go twice on Sundays. I remember my first waffle cone (filled with ice cream, of course) in San Francisco when I was probably about 7-8 years old. Chalk up another glorious memory involving waffle cones about 20 years later. 9/10
