Cultured Caveman

Cultured Caveman: The West Coast's First 100% Paleo Friendly Restaurant and Food Cart.

Portland's first paleo-friendly food cart. Now 3 food carts and a restaurant!

We have a restaurant open 7 days per week:

8233 N Denver Ave
Portland, OR 97217
Open 11a-10p

We have THREE food cart locations open every day in PDX:

4031 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, OR 97214

1477 NE Alberta St
Portland, OR 97211

SW Stark between SW 2nd & SW 3rd Ave
Portland, OR 97214
Open 11a-4p

We serve: grass-fed beef, local chicken, seasonal salads. Food for the caveman in all of us.

Our little food cart started as a kickstarter project. With plenty of hard work and help from our friends, we opened just 2 months later! We're part of the Alberta15 food cart co-op pod, located at 1477 NE Alberta St. We've since expanded to 4 total locations in Portland including a casual counter service restaurant up in the Kenton neighborhood!!!

Paleo curry and carnitas tacos. Also we need to talk about these bacon wrapped dates wrapped almonds. ❤️ @paleomg

Our shepherd's pie is made with 100% grass fed lamb, and we add a bit of organ meat (heart, liver) to SUPERCHARGE the nutrition of this hearty dish.
