Tahrir Square

Tahrir Square is located at the Cartopia Pod (SE 12th and Hawthorne) in Portland, Oregon.

This Egyptian food cart operates out of the spot Bubba Bernie's once occupied.

Tahrir Square is also a town square in Egypt -- nicknamed "Martyr Square" for being the site of several political demonstrations.

Standard Egyptian/Mediterranean menu here, with gyros, falafel, shawarmas, and baklava.

Their lamb gyro ($6) is pretty good. Decent amount of lamb, lettuce, tomato, onion, and tzatziki. Interestingly, they have an orange chicken meat option. I don't think that's the Americanized Chinese protein of the same name, but it at least made me do a double-take.

You'd have expected this from me anyway, but I recommend adding their hot sauce. Extra flavor there. Seeing that they have feta cheese on the menu, it may be possible to add feta to gyros and shawarmas.

Looks like there are a few solid options here. Check this cart out! 7.75/10
