Jonte's Urban Seafood is located at the Rose City Food Park (NE 52nd and Sandy) in Portland, Oregon. T'Lahjonte McCowan obtains fresh, local seafood to go along with her signature sauces and special batters.
I'm a huge seafood fan, so this had to be on the list of carts to try. There's a decent-sized menu here, with po'boys and platters making up the majority of it.

Everything was fried up very well. Very important that both the seafood and the batter/coating get seasoning. It certainly passed my test. Moist catfish, tasty shrimp. The thin crusty cornmeal coating still allowed me to appreciate that wonderful fresh seafood. The bread had a very appealing golden brown, toasty nature. Slightly crispy fries with a soft, pillowy inside, damn right.
I wish I'd have suggested to my friend to make a super sandwich with everything. You know, put the shrimp, catfish, and fries (and coleslaw if we had it) in between the two pieces of bread.

A good first experience. I hope to return and try the other food items. 7.5/10
