The Honey Pot, located at the Good Food Here food pod (SE 43rd and Belmont) serves both savory pies and sweet pies. According to their website, Mary is the main baker, a trained pastry chef. Her business partner, Lisa, may also be in the truck and does the bookkeeping.
On my visit in late March, Mary was in the shiny silver/chrome cart. Pie selections likely rotate on a regular basis. In the never-ending battle between savory and sweet, the savory gods won this tug of war.

The Ravi ($7) is a yellow chicken curry pot pie, with cauliflower, summer squash, Walla Walla onions, and Zante currants. Being a huge curry lover, it was the logical choice.
|Lovely chicken chunks and veggies!|
The crust was firm to hold the filling inside, yet broke away without too much effort. Just superb.
I will be back to lay an execution on a sweet pie. They will all be sent to my chambers! Destruction is imminent. My stomach must be pleased.
How fitting that this cart opened on Pi Day (3/14). They were once located in Bend, Oregon, but probably could not resist Portland's food cart explosion. Whether you want to satisfy that savory craving or yearn for that sweet treat, The Honey Pot will have you covered!
