Portland Soup Company

Portland Soup Company is a food cart located near the corner of SW 4th and College in downtown Portland, Oregon. It's not too far from Portland State University. Jeremy Davidson is the chef and owner, opening this cart around mid-to-late March 2009.

Menu (late December 2011)

I ordered a cup of Tomato Reggiano soup ($4). A lovely red-orange color and creamy texture here. The sweetness of the roasted tomato came through loud and proud, the acidity offset by the Argentine Reggiano. The crunchy croutons on top were an ideal garnish...texture contrasts, people! The soup came with a slice of soft bread.

Soups rotate regularly, and there is an impressive list on their website. By the way, it's $6 if you want a bowl.

What can I say...this is a killer food cart...and they don't just do soup. Portland Soup Company also offers sandwiches, salads, and snacks. In particular, the slow smoked Carlton pork butt sandwich looks amazing to me. That and the tomato soup seem to be the winners with Yelpers. Check out Portland Soup Company ASAP! 8.5/10
