The Fried Onion, a food cart out of Portland, Oregon, is a transplant from the New York culinary scene. With their quick smiles, snarky attitude, and delicious food, the city couldn't be more thrilled to have this eastern-deli-style cart gracing the streets. With seven different dogs, seven sandwiches, six burgers (and a special surcharge for any Red Sox fans—these are New Yorkers, after all), and tons of toppings, you've got all sorts of options to choose from to give yourself an authentic and delicious street food experience. Close your eyes as you take your first bite—you just might feel like you're on the streets of Brooklyn or Manhattan.
While these folks clearly have a sense of humor and an attitude to go with it, their food is serious business, and deserves its accolades in spades. Available for weekday lunches, they're well worth the trip during a long week or when wandering around with friends. With hundreds of faithful fans, you can't go wrong with any of the menu options; the hardest part will be deciding what you're going to try. Featured on many lists of best eating spots in the city, be sure to put The Fried Onion on your must-do list.
