Gonzo is an Israeli food cart located at the D-Street Noshery food pod (SE 33rd and Division) in Portland, Oregon. Tal Caspi is the man running this cart. After reading several positive reviews, I decided to check this cart out for myself in late July.
Last summer, Tal opened this cart as One Hundred Miles, which I never got to try despite heading there three different times. Even though that endeavor closed, Tal resurfaced with a new name and new menu to reflect the food he had growing up in Israel.
It's a very simple menu: two types of sandwiches, plus a few platters. To my knowledge, everything in the cart is made from scratch. I opted for the falafel sandwich ($8), a sizable pita sandwich with homemade falafel, hummus, tahini, cucumber, tomato, pickles, amba, and tsug. Even a few french fries are added on top. As usual, I got my sandwich spicy.

The Sabih sandwich ($8) is another great menu item if you're seeking some fried eggplant. The hard-boiled egg here should make this a bit more filling.
I will certainly plan a return trip to this cart!
