PDX: Quick Lunch from Food Cart Thai Champa

goodies from Thai Champa


I was staying at the Jupiter Hotel (one of my favorite hotels in Portland) when I walked by Thai Champa. I got so much food, I asked if they thought I could eat in the lobby of the Jupiter. The lady (whom I think is owner Air) said some people did but she didn’t want me to get in trouble so I just ate it back in my room. I loved her. She asked where I was from and when I said Los Angeles, she wanted to know why I was eating Thai food in Portland (as LA has a huge Thai population). Well, I tend to eat mostly Asian food anywhere I go so here we are.

I got the seafood soup as well as pad thai and those famous crab puffs. They were good but I couldn’t finish them. They’re huge and quite impressive for the reasonable price.

Thai Champa was my only food cart experience this particular trip and I’m so glad I stopped by!
