Food Carts: Ziba's Pitas and Cool Harry's

Day two of the food cart extravaganza.  In honor of day number two, we went to two food carts.  Oh yes, lunch and dessert.  And they were both amazing.  First stop, Ziba's Pitas for some delicious, satisfying Bosnian food.  Ziba herself (who is oh-so-nice) served us full plates of burek, mine spinach and Annika's meat-filled, with sides of cool cucumbers and an eggplant and red pepper spread.  Wow.  This was a first for me.  Annika has lived in Croatia so was very familiar with this food, but this was my first burek, and it was simply wonderful.  Not what you might consider a typical pita.  More like a flakey, doughy spanakopita.  
   Then, because dessert is a never a bad idea, we took a quick trip up to Cool Harry's Yogurt.  It is, hands down, the most delicious frozen yogurt I have ever had.   I repeat:  THE. MOST. DELICIOUS. FROZEN. YOGURT. EVER.  If you live in Portland, put down your computer and go and get some Cool Harry's.  If you don't live in Portland, get in your car and come here now.  For the yogurt.  Seriously.  It's that good.  Pure, creamy, tart, organic, with live cultures.   I mean, really.  What more is there?!
This is Annika, melting with her first taste of Cool Harry's.  It's that good.  She is literally about to cry.  Monday was so so so good.  I never thought anything could get better.  But now all of this for Wednesday.  I wonder so much what Friday will bring!

You seem to be going to Cool Harry's quite frequently. You didn't mention that you were at this cart ALSO on Monday, and probably lots of other top secret days.

That all looks wonderful but I'm still stuck on Pastrami on Rye : )
