M-F 11:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Tucked between a string of storefronts on Bend’s NW Galveston Street, Spork is easy to pass without a second thought. But if you catch the quick turn, you’ll soon realize it’s a place you don’t want to miss.

A lone silver bullet trailer sits in the corner as families, students and even top chefs in Bend eagerly await Spork’s globally inspired dishes. From coconut green curry ($7.00) to fried catfish tacos ($3.00 each) this cart is bound to tickle your taste buds—no matter what you’re craving.

For meat lovers, order the spicy fried chicken ($9.00).  A perfect mixture of sweet and spicy, the chicken is finished with a soy sambal sauce and accompanied with jasmine rice and your choice of salad (try the kimchi). On the other side of the spectrum, many dishes are vegetarian. A popular dish, the coconut green curry, is chock full of hearty chunks of grilled zucchini, mushrooms, snap peas and tofu. Though coconut creamy, a blend of spices round out the curry with a nice kick. Fresh spinach is stirred in, and the dish is finished with a touch of cilantro. Go old school with a bottled coca-cola or try the roasted coconut juice.

Covered picnic tables and a circle of sun-loving lawn chairs make the dining scene. Beware as seats tend to fill up fast. With surprisingly sufficient parking, this cart is easily accessible and the perfect hang out spot. As one mom says to her two young daughters,”What would we do without Spork?”

Insider tip: Come just before noon to beat the rush.

Bonus: Spork buys local and uses biodegradable servingware.

What I had:

Coconut green curry $7.00

Coca-Cola $1.50

Total: $8.50
