Respond to Review of Homegrown Smoker Vegan Barbecue - Food Cart
by blisssu

Review: Sometimes I get cranky that there are too few vegan restaurants in Portland, and so the good ones are always crowded. But then I remember the food carts--so many with vegan options to try! All-vegan Homegrown Smoker is a recent discovery--I found it through it's a 10-minute walk from home. Thank you! On my first visit I tried the Combo Meal--smoked soy curls, tempeh and sausage, cornbread, sweet potato fries and the best ever MacNoCheese for $8 and enough for three meals. The smoke flavor is real, not liquid smoke flavoring, and that makes for very tasty food. I almost missed out on my second visit--arrived just past the 3 p.m. closing, but the nice guy at the window sold me his remaining chili, some baked beans, cornbread and excellent collards--enough for two meals for two people (i.e., four meals) at a bargain price. I had been hoping for an order of MacNoCheese, but the lucky customers who preceded me finished off his supply. I am not one of those people who lives for barbecue, but the Homegrown Smoker may lead me to a new addiction.

Homegrown Smoker is now open on Saturdays!

Unfortunately, Homegrown Smoker closed its cart near my home. I'm sure their food is still delicious, but I haven't been to the Mississippi location yet to try it out.
