KOi Fusion PDX

Cartathlon Adventures

March 1, 2011

More photos and hilarious videos on our Flickr album here!

We have partnered up with non-profit Sanctity of Hope to accept tokens given to the homeless to be redeemed for food at ALL KOi truck locations. These tokens are given out to homeless people in Portland to be used in lieu of cash for all sorts of products and services at participating businesses. Here’s an article about us and Whiffies as the first food carts to participate! At KOi Fusion, we will be accepting 1 token for 1 TACO ($2 value), and 4 tokens for 1 BURRITO ($7 value). We encourage all of our customers, fans, and anyone out there to support this cause by either handing out these tokens to the homeless instead of cash, as well as purchasing tokens to then be distributed out by the organization. There are many times we all want to help out, lend a hand or give … but we turn the other way. This is a good start. SANCTITY OF HOPE
A 501c3 charity offering tokens to local communities to give to the homeless instead of cash. Tokens can be used at local businesses and vending machines for food, clothing, laundry services, survival gear, and bicycle parts.

The Problem
Many people do not give to the homeless because of concerns over ultimate use – the ultimate use of their gift by the recipient. This adversely affects both the homeless and those wishing to help them.

Our Purpose

  1. Helping communities take care of the most basic needs of its least fortunate members thereby offering HOPE for a better life.
  2. Helping communities by reducing their concerns over ultimate use thereby letting them help their less fortunate members.

Meet Our D-Street Neighbors!

February 22, 2011

We’re already feeling quite at home at our new food cart pod, D-Street Noshery on SE 32nd and Division. Weekends are bustling and we can already forsee some great summer nights ahead. Chill out under our heated tent, have a couple beers, eat some good food and relax. A GREAT place for families too, might I add … there’s a little something for everyone and we won’t get mad if you bring all your kids (including pets).

Thanks to the folks running this pod and the nice customers who come through, we are definitely having a good time! So here’s a quick meet & greet of our neighbors … be sure to say hi to them next time you’re here!

Probably the first cart you’ll see … Leif’s Flying Fish Company!

Leif sells some fresh seafood products! Really.

Want some Venezuelan street food? Mike from Fuego de Lotus is your guy!

Look at this fine meal he made for us! Excuse the already eaten bread … so delicious!

The friendlist people with the snazziest cart on this lot, Brian and Shannon from SLICE brick oven pizza!

Hey Brian!

Kevin from Oregon Ice Works … sells soups made from scratch in the winter! Wait til you try his ice cream. BUTTA.
Ice, soup … works for us!

Yeah, and this stuff with the broccolini and peppers … yeah. Do it.

Of COURSE pies would be coming out of this cute cart! The Pie Spot.

You will never be prepared for what is to come from Awesome Cone.

Try “The Greatest Cone Ever Conceived By Mankind.”

Have a brew at Captured by Porches beer bus!

And here is Herb making no-nonsense, good for you mac & cheese!

He will get you at “free sample”

Now just have a seat, turn up the heat and chow!!!!

Wanna take a stab at making Korean BBQ tacos from home?

Recently we received an email from Anne, the Corporate Chef at Sur La Table HQ. Anne told us about a new cooking class being developed. She creates class themes and menus for their 23 cooking class programs around the country. She had the opportunity to try KOi Fusion a few months back when she was in town and wanted to feature us as one of four food carts/trucks in this specific class theme called “America’s Food Truck Cuisine”. We worked with her to develop an at-home friendly version of our Spicy Pork Tacos.

Looks like April 2nd is one of the dates this cooking class is available at the Portland location. You can view it here.

Let us know if you plan on attending the class and where you’re from!
