No Fish Go Fish: the cart continues

Rusty and I were faced with the classic downtown dilemma: a brown bag lunch meeting, and we were both sans brown bag. All the usual suspects seemed...well...usual and so Rusty suggested the No Fish Go Fish cart. Now I have sampled the No Fishes in the past, and remember when the cart first appeared on the corner of 5th and Yamhill, but have not stopped by for many years.

I have to say I forgot how much I like the guy that runs the cart, he is always chipper and offers samples of his soups made from scratch. Today there were three choices: Mushroom Barley; Barley-Risotto; and Potato, Spinach and Coconut. We both chose the Potato soup despite the fact that it qualified as vegan.

For five bucks you get soup and two No Fish sandwiches, which are basically crispy fish-shaped thingies with yummy fillings. Additional No Fish are a dollar each. There are plenty of different fillings; I chose the mozzarella/tomato and a curry/vegetable. The No Fishes go well with the soup and are really tasty.

This is the perfect rainy-day grub. The soup was hot a just a little spicy with a nice, but not-too-strong coconut taste. Rusty ordered the special No Fish stuffed with cream cheese and pepperoncini, which sounded way to high brow for me. He also ordered the special black olive and basil. He thought the former was exceptional and the latter, while good, was less noteworthy. He said he would have to keep up on
