Sweet Pea's Brulee is located at the Good Food Here food pod (near SE 42nd and Belmont) in Portland, Oregon. Tim and Kate Bergam head this food cart filled with sweet treats and desserts!
Sweet Pea's offers various flavors of creme brulee, an amazing rich custard dessert topped with a layer of hard caramel (the sugar on top is usually torched).

But first, I had to sample their house-made vanilla marshmallow (usually two pieces for $1). A delicious marshmallow here, very light and perfect to toast if you want a s'more! And Sweet Pea's offers s'mores as well ($3)!
Sweet Pea's even makes their own vanilla extract that goes into most of these treats ($6 for a 2 oz. bottle).

You can see the custard peeking through in the middle of the brulee....
The creme brulee, caramel chews, and marshmallows were a huge hit. I'll be back in the future to try some of their other menu items. I may have eaten a lot before coming here, but it just goes to show that there's always room for an amazing dessert! 8.5/10
