Portland Food Trucks

The Portland Food Truck scene is pretty amazing. You can get amazing food of every cuisine imaginable for half the price of a normal restaurant. In this segment, I check out the best food trucks in Portland. My first stop is on Alder Street, which is located in the city center. Portland street food is as good as it gets, with standouts ranging from the Dump Truck (serving up killer dumplings) to the Grilled Cheese Grill. There are three different food truck locations in Portland, but this is the most popular location for the working class. What’s your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

Hi, I’m Jason Hill, host of YouTube’s “Chef Tips” series. I went to culinary school in 1998, and worked as a chef for many years here in Southern California. Some of the great people I worked with included Homaro Cantu (Restaurant Charlie Trotter, Chicago’s Moto); James Boyce (Le Cirque, The Phoenician, Loews Coronado, Studio, Cotton Row),  and famed French chef Michel Richard (Citrus, Citronelle, Bistro M, Central). After quitting the restaurant business to start a family, I began writing a cooking column for several newspapers (Associated Press, Freedom News Service and Knight-Ridder Tribune), and launched my YouTube channel, “Chef Tips,” in 1997. I love sharing my knowledge of cooking with others, and I hope you enjoy my recipes!
