EverOut is The Mercury's new website devoted to things to do in Portland and across the Pacific Northwest. It has all the same things you're used to seeing from Mercury EverOut, just in a new spot!
This week, Portland gets two new ghost kitchens: a virtual burrito joint and a hip Cambodian fried chicken pop-up (with edible-glitter rice!). Plus, the popular "Mexicajun" food cart Nacheaux plans to launch a brick-and-mortar restaurant, Portland Brewing says goodbye after 34 years, and Otto's Sausage Kitchen appears on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. You'll find all that and more food-world updates below. For more ideas, check out our food and drink guide.

According to a press release, the team behind Sizzle Pie has launched a new "virtual burrito joint" called Dynamite Burrito, available for pickup or delivery through DoorDash and Postmates and coming soon to Caviar. The menu offers gluten-free and plant-based options and includes burritos and burrito bowls, with add-ons like carne asada, pollo asado, carnitas, cauliflower baja, cauliflower asada, and soy curl carnitas, plus salsas and hot sauces.
