Tabor is a Czech food cart located in downtown Portland, Oregon, near the corner of 5th and Stark. They are one of Portland's longest-running food carts, and home to the Schnitzelwich.
Obviusly, I just had to get the Schnitzelwich to see what it was all about. A small line had formed by the time I got there at peak lunch hour. As several people that already ordered started receiving their Schnitzelwiches, I saw the sheer majesty and grandeur of a full-pound breaded pork loin (or chicken breast) inside a Grand Central Bakery ciabatta roll with Romaine lettuce, red pepper spread, and horseradish sauce.
Because of my habit to hit up multiple food carts, I was pleased to see Tabor had a 1/2 Schnitzelwich option for $5 (the regular is $8). I got a half pork schnitzelwich this time, and the friendly woman taking orders said it would be about 10-15 minutes.
As I waited for my food, more people flocked to Tabor. This food cart has an excellent following, and because they are located in busy downtown Portland, they can expect a lot of revenue. Twenty minutes after placing my order, my Schnitzelwich was ready.

And after all, this doesn't spell the death knell for Tabor in my review anyway. I heard wonderful comments on their goulash, so that could be another option for next time. For now, Tabor is a good food cart to check out. It's just not the first place I'd go to for a sandwich.
