Red Skinz is an Indian fry bread cart
This cart was the former home of Burrito Box, but now a young man named Kennedy runs an Indian fry bread business here. He lived in Pendleton before coming to Portland, and he recalled making these Indian fry breads with his mom when growing up. Kennedy said fry bread recipes can vary, and he uses a rather simple family recipe that includes flour, salt, and baking powder. Some fry bread recipes use sugar, but not here.
I decided to try the Indian taco ($7). A decent-sized piece of puffy fry bread held homemade chili (meat and beans), lettuce, salsa, and cheese. There is a vegetarian chili option available.
|That's right...fold it and nuke the monstrous taco!|
There are a few other menu options here as well. For starters, there's just the plain fry bread ($3) with choice of cinnamon-sugar, powdered sugar, honey, peanut butter, jam, or butter. If you want to go bolder, there's a PB&J fry bread, garlic & parmesan fry bread, and garlic & cheese sandwich fry bread.
An awesome idea here to do a "chili dipper" option: a cup of the homemade chili with strips of frybread. It can be a nice portable option if needing to eat while walking back to the office.
But wait! An Indian Burger! Fry bread, beef patty, lettuce, cheese, onion, pickles, tomato, ketchup, mustard, and mayo! Should add chili to this and we got another winner!
Honestly, the possibilities are endless regarding fry bread dishes. Check this unique Portland food cart out! 7/10
