“This was a great food tour. We ate at four different locations (all food hall or pods), and got to try food from multiple places within those. We left stuffed. Everything was delicious, and the variety was great. We tried multiple types of food that we have never tried before and wouldn’t even know where to find back home. Our tour guide, Michelle, was great as well. She gave us recommendations for our whole trip and was super knowledgeable about the area and sites.”

“Michelle is an awesome person to be around, her enthusiasm and knowledge really made my day!! we only had a little over a day to spend in Portland, and through this tour alone I feel like I got a week’s worth of tourism in… and maybe a week’s worth of food, haha, it’s a great value. I can’t recommend it highly enough!”

“Our sales team recently had the opportunity to meet face-to-face for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Michelle from Lost Plate Food Tours made the meeting an overwhelming success! She gave us a tour of the Portland food cart scene and provided VIP service along the way. She shared her knowledge of the history and culture of the food carts but also some fantastic mural artwork throughout the city. It was the perfect backdrop to allow our team to get to know each other and truly bond. Oh and the food was amazing too! I highly recommend booking a tour with Lost Plate the next time you are in Portland. I also recommend skipping breakfast in preparation.”

My Husband and I Loved This Tour

“The portions were filling as well as delicious. We would have never ordered from those carts on our own. It was a great experience touring the world via food carts. We also had amazing weather for this tour and the walk to view murals was lovely. Absolutely would recommend this to other Traveling Foodies.”

“This tour is an amazing and tasty way to spend an afternoon but be warned – bring your appetite. Our guide Michelle spent 3 hours taking us to 4 different places where we ate food from 7 different vendors. Along the way she told us stories about the area, pointed out some on the stunning murals, and served us food from carts that I likely wouldn’t have chosen for myself. The food was delicious and I enjoyed hearing about where the owners of each cart was from and how they got their start. Portion sizes were huge and best of all Michelle called ahead to each stop so there was no waiting in line. I appreciated how Michelle always kept her mask on, wiped down tables before we sat down, always found a place to sit that wasn’t crowded, and offered us hand sanitizer after each stop. It was clear that she takes Covid precautions seriously. Thank you for the fun afternoon Michelle!”

“I do a food tour in every city I visit, and this one was great. It was fun, easy, and delicious. Michelle was great, told us a bit about the neighborhoods history, was energetic, and overall a great tour guide. I had so many favorites. That at the end of the day I went back to some of the locations we visited, and tried something else. Must do!”

My First Food Tour Experience Post Covid Shutdowns

“We tried to do a food cart experience on our own but it was miserable. Places that were amazing and trendy before Covid are now shut down or in currently sketchy areas. We thought a tour would be helpful. Michelle did her homework so every place we went was fresh and delicious (and open LOL). I highly recommend the tour and be sure to come hungry you are going to experience food from around the world!”

“This tour was a great addition to our stay in Portland! All the food was super good. The portions given were very reasonable considering you’re trying many different foods; definitely did not end on an empty stomach! If anything I wish I had more room since everything was so good we wanted to finish each dish completely lol. A lot of the food we tried might not have been things we’d regularly would go for so it was great to have the chance to try them because they were delicious! Covid-friendly too; masks worn (unless eating), outdoors, & spread out from others. Also gave us great feedback on places in Portland and even gave cute little souvenirs, so sweet! If ever in Portland, for sure check out one of their food tours; won’t regret it!”

“Great way to experience Portland’s amazing food scene. My tour guide (Michelle) took us to some of the best food carts and pods in Portland and we had some top quality food from many different countries (Belgium, Russia, Burma, Thailand, Canada) . Portions are generous so you will leave full. A great experience.”

If you love food and you’re visiting Portland, please go on this tour! Our tour guide Michelle is so sweet and gave us really interesting info on each of the food carts we went to. The portions are generous, so bring an empty stomach! Every food cart had something incredible to offer. Also a plus for this tour was that it’s very Covid friendly. Michelle was stocked on hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes. She also made sure to keep us all comfortable and ensure safety while we dined. Thank you Lost Plates! You are amazing.”

Wow Michelle was amazing, knows her stuff not only about the food but about the locations and Portland in general. The food was amazing, exposed us to many new foods and did not disappoint with the portions. Could not move or breathe by the end of the tour hahaha. Highly recommend her very personal feeling tour!”
