Blues City Biscuits is a food cart located in the Cartlandia food pod in Portland, Oregon. Kimberly, a native of Memphis and the operator, has brought her grandmother's Southern cooking to the Northwest.
(NOTE: The cart debuted as Blues City Greens, with the name change to Blues City Biscuits on 11/14/11)

|Yeah, let's get a closeup of the good stuff....|
The collard greens were also very good. Cooked down very nicely here. It appeared the garlic broth made its way into the greens as well, along with a few other spices to take it to the next level. The corn dodger was perhaps the weakest item on the plate. A great job on the frying, and a lovely texture, but a bit too salty for my tastes.
I would have also liked a bit more food for my $8; this meal never stood a chance. Then again, many meals don't stand a chance against my voracious appetite.
I like that there is no wheat in this food cart. It seems that there are more gluten-free meal options wherever I go, and it's exciting at how delicious they all are. Overall, this was a very nice experience, and I plan to return for more in the future.
