No trip to Portland would be complete without a stop (or two, or three…) at Cultured Caveman!

This is an all-Paleo food cart opened by Heather and Joe (we only got to meet Heather, but she was amazing to talk to – in fact, she was so amazing that we stood in the sleet for 30 minutes chatting with her!!).

One of the best things about Cultured Caveman is that you don’t have to worry about any of the ingredients – you can eat everything off the menu (and we did just that!). Their ingredients are top notch – grass fed beef and paleo oils (like tallow, olive oil, coconut oil) – and the food is delicious (my favorite was the Ethiopian Cabbage). And they even have tasty bone broth!!


It was bitterly cold, but Heather braved the freezing conditions and kept the Alberta location open all Saturday while Joe fought to unfreeze the water lines at the Hawthorne location. (They have 3 locations within Portland: in Alberta, Hawthorne, and Downtown.)

Don’t leave Portland without eating at Cultured Caveman!

After filling our tummies with such amazing food, we headed to Ground Kontrol for some geeky arcade gaming fun (after seeing a snowmobile drive through downtown)!!
