The Best Hour Ever Spent Waiting

By Julie Davis, September 17, 2020

Any food place with over an hour wait is always an immediate pass for me – except for this place.

One of the key indicators I knew this place would be good was the long lines when it first just opened in August 2020. I typically don’t follow trendy places because a lot of the time it’s just about the aesthetics and the food is average at most. However, GrindWitTryz has quickly become my go to all time favorite food cart for the past two months it’s been open!

It’s a food cart located in the Park the Carts pod on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. They are open Tuesday – Saturday from 12 PM – 6 PM. However, things sell out FAST! Usually going after 3 or 4 PM is a risk where some things even sell out within the first two hours of opening. 

The Kalua Pork is to die for!!! One of my main indicators I use to see if a restaurant produces fresh authentic hawaiian food is the pork. Is it soft and tender? Is it juicy? Or is it dry and hard to chew? Every Time I have gone to GrindWitTryz, the Kalua Pork has been so fresh and tender! The best part is that I even had leftovers for dinner and then lunch the next day!

One of the beauties of living in Portland is that you’re able to get 5 Star Food at affordable prices through the abundance of Food Carts! Thus, I highly recommend checking out GrindWitTryz the next time you find yourself in this part of town!

I promise you won’t be disappointed – maybe by the line but the wait is worth it!

She/Her

Julie Davis believes finding home is a story we write ourselves. To Julie, finding home describes the way the buying process itself reveals our style, preferences, and priorities—not to mention what “just feels right,” according to Julia and Evelyn, just two of Julie’s happy homeowners. Her clients call Julie an intuitive agent, an investment-savvy realtor, and a strategic negotiator. But Julie defines her success in simpler terms, “Helping clients find a house means nurturing the process of discovering what home means to them.” As a Portland REALTOR® with Living Room Realty, buyers and sellers not only receive a trusted guide but an agent with profound knowledge in maintaining a home’s integrity. According to Julie, her first-rate education in home construction began years before her real estate career started, when she worked alongside activists devoted to saving and restoring old Portland homes. Today, she’s on the cutting edge of real estate with training in Earth Advantage and a specialty in ADUs, expertise she uses daily to support her clients as they navigate the Portland area’s booming real estate market together. From growing up on a dairy farm in rural Oregon to living in Northeast Portland’s Roseway neighborhood today, Julie’s enthusiasm for the Portland area informs her work with buyers and sellers. First-time home buyers like Sarah, who purchased a home on a single-income and specific budget, credits Julie’s strong negotiation skills with the purchase of her half-acre farm in East Portland’s Gilbert Park neighborhood. After Sarah parted ways with her initial realtor, who relied on assistants to show prospective houses, assistants who often criticized her selections, she searched for a REALTOR® who could also be an advocate. “Julie worked so hard for me,” says Sarah, who knows Julie saved her thousands of dollars in home repairs. When buyers Evelyn and Julia faced the frustration of their seller’s unavailable REALTOR® after the conclusion of their sale, Julie’s ability to build a positive working relationship with the sellers themselves eased the frustration, while also lightening the stress of a big move and subsequent renovations for Evelyn and Julia. Her clients routinely highlight Julie’s unwavering calm when working through the exciting and stressful buying and selling process, but Julia notes that it’s not only a personality strength of Julie’s—it’s just good business, “Julie’s business acumen is very strong. She keeps in mind that real estate is a business, and that can be hard for people—but in the end, it’s an investment.” And Debbie, a client who both sold and bought with Julie’s guidance, hired Julie because of her impressive personal character, in addition to her emotional equilibrium. “I knew I needed someone who could handle themselves well and someone I felt I could trust. The quickest way to lose me in any financial transaction is to pressure me into something,” says Debbie. Julie understands her clients - buyers, sellers and investors  - will need expertise beyond her own, and has built a knowledgement network of experts including construction professionals, home inspectors and financial professionals.  Her clients refer to Julie’s “amazing team,” assembled to support them through the buying and selling process, a group including experienced and trusted women contractors and home inspectors. Julie’s not only building a strong team but providing opportunities for her clients to meet highly capable women entrepreneurs. With over 25 years working as a community activist, and the founding Executive Director of Basic Rights Oregon, her work as a Portland REALTOR® is a natural extension of her advocacy life, where she sought to create a diverse, inclusive, and accepting community of activists to defend everyone’s basic rights. Today, her clients and colleagues are the regular beneficiaries of these remarkable cross-over skills. When it comes to defining what home means to each person, Julie brings a dedicated worldview her clients experience over and over, best summarized by Julie’s own belief that, “Everyone deserves  a place to call home.”
