Traditionally a very rural cuisine, Northern Thai food is an experience for all five senses. We never frown on using your hands as utensils – just don’t expect chopsticks here!
The most significant difference with Northern Thai fair is that nearly every meal is accompanied with ‘khao niew’, sticky Jasmine rice meant for eating with your hands. Best enjoyed when formed into small croquettes, the sticky rice is dipped in the fresh chili pastes and sauces that are most prominent in Chiang Mai and its surrounding areas. Fresh and crunchy vegetables are served with every sauce, dip, and paste.
Our travels through Mexico combined with Pacific NW culture have created our unique style and approach. We are as resourceful as possible, from the use of recycled materials to help create all of our carts and locations, to cooking in the most energy efficient way in the world (Rocket Stove, Oh Yeah)!!
In 2010, El Sancho took root as one of the first local food carts in downtown Bend. A couple years later we created our taco shack at Pak-It Liquidators, our junkyard oasis. After Pak-It closed we moved the cart and remnants of the shack to its current location at Crux Brewery. Our taco shop, in NE Bend, is our chance to create a permanent home and headquarters for El Sancho. Come kick back at any of our locations and also look for us at our favorite local events and festivals.
At Jackson’s Corner we believe in local, humane, organic, etc. not to be trendy, but because we believe that is possible for a sustainable food system to exist. It is so easy these days to take advantage of the industrial farming system and reap the potential benefits for profitability. But we believe in conscious sourcing of food. It is better for our own health and our communities. We believe that it is possible to support your local farmer within a restaurant. We love food. We love coffee. We love meeting the people who walk in our doors every day. We are so thankful for each and every person who has helped make Jackson’s Corner possible.
