While Gastro Mania takes inspiration from the vibrant food scene in Portland and the momentum that food trucks, gastro pubs, and breweries are enjoying, our concept reaches back to the good old tradition of fine dining and the quality of five-star restaurants. Chef Alex Nenchev decided to blend hip with his background as a classically trained Continental and Mediterranean executive chef, bringing the white table cloth standard to his food truck. His crafty and finessed gastronomy uses only fresh and local gourmet ingredients to deliver Mediterranean inspired delicatessens daily in Portland’s favorite casual trade mark – the four wheeler.
Gastro Mania keeps things simple – delicately grilled seafood, crisp salads, herbs, lots of olive oil and lemon, and creative original sauces and marinades. We prep and cook everything the same day until we run out, and we start over the next day. We enjoy serving from the truck, but we treat our operation with a top-chef zeal and fidelity to fine dining.
Very soon we will be serving Gelato to further indulge yourself with a sinful, and refreshing dessert after your meal.
Fast and fine can go together – come and treat yourself.
Lamb gyros are stellar. But the salmon sliders are amazing (and worth the wait!).
Salmon salad is amazing. It will make your co-workers jealous from the aroma alone!
Porchetta sandwich is too good to be real. Extremely filling and slightly less-than-healthy, but excellent.
This review is of the downtown location which I didn’t see a listing for.
They have my favorite chicken and lamb gyros at the downtown area carts, sauce is excellent and meat is knife cut instead of the apple peeler like thing that makes the thin slices most places have.
I wish they had a mixed combo of their veggie gyros + meat option without rice. The hummus which comes on the enough for two meals gyro plate could use more olive oil in the mix but it is tasty.
On my weekly rotation of carts in downtown for lunch.
