More Poutine in Portland Every Day

Two more restaurants have started to offer poutine on the menu in Portland. I will get to them soon!

Laurelwood NW Public House (2327 NW Kearney) recently underwent renovations, and upon the reopening the revamped menu (pdf) reveals . . .

Poutine $5/$8
House Cut Fries, Cheese Curds,
Mother Lode Golden Ale Gravy

Irving Street KitchenIrving Street Kitchen (701 NW 13th) opened recently in the Pearl District, and the restaurant received pre-opening press that included this mention of my favorite Canadian foodstuff:

On the side is poutine, a french-fries, cheese-curds and ham-hock gravy mash-up ($6).

But I am a bit concerned that poutine was only a special, because it is not listed on the menu (pdf) found on the website . . . we’ll see!

Hat tip to Devlyn of Savor Portland. She brought both of these items to my attention on the Twitter. (Follow her @SavorPDX, and follow me at @PortlandPoutine!)
