When Pastrami Zombie landed on West Burnside Street in 2016, it was the first time many Portlanders had tried Melissa McMillan’s smoked brisket pastrami, which had become something of a sensation after the New York Times paid a visit to Sammich, her original Ashland sandwich shop.
The cart, which has moved around the metro area a few times over the past six years, left its most recent home at the Flying Tortoise pod, 4400 N.E. Glisan St., at the end of May, heading for Corvallis. At least, that was the original plan, until McMillan learned her truck was longer than the maximum allowed by that city’s municipal code.
