Eater PDX reports that one of Portland’s poutine purveyors, Fats Pub has closed.
Heather and I reviewed Fats’ breakfast poutine about a year ago. It was not our favorite:
The gravy (though brown, oily, and chock full of bacon and mushrooms) tasted more like sweet and sour American French dressing than beef gravy. The tiny bits of chevre proved not to be counterpoints, but rather tartness intensifiers.
Nevertheless, it’s sad to lose a poutine purveyor. Fortunately here in Portland, we have plenty of poutine options!
We’ll be leaving the review up for posterity, but have removed Fats from the Poutine Purveyors list.
