The menu changes regularly; last week it included flavors from Malaysia, including the coconut beef stew Beef Renang and Tempeh Manis, a stir-fried tempeh in a sweet soy sauce. Kley Dhillon spent 10 years living and traveling in Asia before opening the cart with his wife Rashita Banu in Central Oregon, according to the owners.

Editor's note: The print edition had the cart's hours from noon to 4pm. The hours are 12:30pm to 4pm. We regret the error.
