Pressed

Pressed is a sandwich and wings cart located at the Carts on Foster pod in Portland, Oregon. Robert opened this cart on July 20.


Sandwiches here are $8 or $9. All come with a side of fries.


  • "Reuben Stunner" ($9) has been the most popular item. Corned beef (straight from the Midwest) or turkey on rye, with 60-day aged Swiss cheese and Robert's special sauce (basically his own take on 1000 Island dressing). Yup, sauerkraut is also added if you want it.
  • "The Gambino" ($9) is their Italian sandwich with ham, salami, mozzarella, and homemade light aioli.
  • "Last Sammy" ($9) contains salami, pepperoni, fresh chiles, pepperjack cheese, and a homemade light aioli.
  • Stuffed pitas ($8) can include chicken or tofu, or probably a whole bunch of vegetables. Add mozzarella and the light aioli.
  • There are ham or turkey paninis ($8). Again, add mozzarella and the light aioli.
The wings are $6 (six wings), $8 (eight wings), or $11 (dozen). Three sauces here: medium, hot, and OMG. No, the "OMG" option is not nuclear spicy. It's more a raspberry-serrano-sweet pepper mix that has nice flavor. The hot sauce is vinegar-based with habaneros. I love that the wings were juicy and came clean off the bone. I'd pay more money for larger wings, though.


"OMG" Wings
There are fish and chips here. I haven't seen the portion size, but I'm assuming it's large when it costs $12.

"The Kimmy" ($6) is a genius, simple sandwich of peanut butter, jelly, and bacon.


Peanut Butter S'mores. Yes, they exist. You'll get two of them for $5. Marshmallows get torched as you wait. Yes, please.





I told Robert about making something a large casserole dish of s'mores. Spicy preferred (required for me). Because it's genius.


If you can visit the cart on Friday, mention that it's "Free S'mores Friday" and get a Peanut Butter Cup s'more for free. Not sure how long this promotion is good for.
