Operated out of a shiny Airstream named “Gudrun,” Viking Soul Food has carved out a niche for itself as the only food truck in Portland to serve Norwegian food. The menu revolves around lefse (pronounced lef-suh)—a flatbread, similar to a crepe or pita, made of potatoes, flour, butter, cream and salt. Co-owners Megan Walhood and Jeremy Daniels have concocted several scrumptious lefse wraps. On the savory side, they sell one with Norse meatballs, pickled cabbage and Gjetost (Yay-toast) sauce, a creamy cheese made by caramelizing whey from goat cheese. Then, for the sweet tooth, they offer wraps with lingonberries and cream cheese or lemon curd and spiced pecans.
