The Good and Evil Wrap Co.

The Good and Evil Wrap Company is located at the Cartlandia food pod in Portland, Oregon. It's still a fairly new cart; owner Tim opened this cart in March 2013.

I love a good wrap, whether it's filled with healthy ingredients (the "good" menu) or sinful, gut-busting components (the "evil" menu). Here, you can have one or the other -- and truly twisted people may probably consider getting at least one choice from each of the columns.

Wraps on the "good" column range from $6 to $7.50. The "evil" wraps range from $7.25 to $7.75.

You have a choice of a white, whole wheat, or gluten-free wrap. People can also order a bowl of the tasty wrap components, a nice choice for people who are gluten intolerant or just want to avoid the extra carbs. Again, with non-gluten-free items in the cart, those with extremely sensitive GF allergies might want to watch out.

The panda chose to be sinful on this visit. Any item screaming breakfast tends to get called out first. And look at what we have on the "evil" menu: a breakfast wrap! Having minced bacon in the wrap all but sealed the deal.

The breakfast wrap ($7.25) comes with crispy bacon, scrambled eggs, potatoes, tomatoes, sauteed onions, green bell peppers, and cheddar-jack cheese. I got mine with a whole wheat wrap.

The wrap came with an option to get hot sauce or syrup. The more adventurous people can also combine the two for a sweet-spicy kick. Yeah, let's combine the two!

Tim makes a very good wrap. The diced potatoes (still with the skin on) are cooked perfectly and want to melt in your mouth like a baked potato. Love the melted, stringy cheese here. My wrap tended to have more potatoes and not that many tomatoes. I think I might ask for more bacon next time as well.

The syrup-hot sauce combo is interesting. On this trip, most of the hot sauce sank to the bottom. Meanwhile, I got a light coating of the thicker, stickier syrup throughout most of the wrap. I'm a fan of the sweet-heat combo any day.

Tim runs several daily specials a week, and he posts a picture on the business Facebook page if so.

Some notable add-ons: $1 more to add bacon, tempeh, or avocado to a wrap or a bowl. $2 more to add chicken, steak, or tofu.

There is a kid's menu featuring "pocket" wraps. Choices include PBB&J ($3; peanut butter, banana, and jelly); cheese ($2); and pizza ($3; pepperoni, cheese, and pizza sauce).

I love the logo on the cart. It really captures what the concept is all about.

  1. I love the Good & Evil Wrap Co. Had the Black and Bleu, which was wrapped tight and tidy so that all those delicious ingredients make it to your mouth and not all over your hands. I'm going back for the Buffalo Chicken Wrap--My personal preference? Definitely EVIL!! Don't forget to order the crisp on the edges and soft and gooey in the middle chocolate chip cookie!!
