I walked through downtown Portland a few weekends back and randomly felt like eating sushi. In a town with no shortage of food options, Rolling Gourmet caught my eye for its unique fusion sushi and sandwich options. I also found the menu board appealing, although the food-porn photos left me staring for a good 2-3 minutes. Well played....

The snapper was cooked perfectly, not oily. The snapper is actually fried (basically what tempura is) and then baked. Great job on rolling and cutting that sushi. Fresh ingredients and a nice portion size for the amount paid. I also enjoyed the Korean kimchi.
There are also six Lunch Box Combos for $7 each. Each combo comes with kimchi fried rice and two side items. Those Korean dishes just scream amazing flavor.
There are three sandwiches highlighted at Rolling Gourmet: the Korea-Anna Hoagie ($7; choice of Korean BBQ chicken or Korean spicy pork), Cajun Shrimp Hoagie ($8), or a Fried Snapper Hoagie ($8; same baked and fried snapper as the fish on the Dynamite Roll combo).
Yes, you can get great sushi, sandwiches, and dishes at a food cart. Rolling Gourmet is proof of that. I am lucky to be surrounded by so many outstanding food options. 8.5/10
