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!

Yes … we said SPIT’D. Because we can say whatever we want … we have a poem written about us! Thanks for all the love k’headz, and all the special ways you show it. It’s just our style. So we received a tweet the other day from Gastropoetics that we were the subject of his/her latest poetry grind. So turn your lights down low, open your mind … and check this out!

In a wind of one ways
and bike lanes.
and driveways.
KOi slips by unseen.
As the day shifts and the crowds change.
This chameleon of the food truck world
sends its social signal.

By day the crowded pace of lunch on the go.
Catered sites,
Thirty minute hunger fights.
They come in short, sudden bursts.
With a drive that only a midday empty stomach sees.

Night brings a different shade of this complex feast.
With a late draw
And bars not far.
It greets a different need.
Emerging from hidden corners,
Breaking from purposed paths.
These treats are more than drunk eats.

But what binds this great feasting,
can’t be heard by the ears
but by the loudest silent call the world has ever seen.

Parked here.
K’headz it’s time.
Get some.
