Welcome to Portland Poutine!

dinerantpoutine09You do know what poutine is, don’t you?

Nowadays, everyone in Portland knows what goes into the French Canadian delicacy known as poutine, but just a few years ago that wasn’t the case – poutine was virtually unheard of in these parts.

Poutine is now available as a regular menu item at a handful of restaurants in Portland, Oregon – in particular Lincoln, The Original Dinerant, and of course Potato Champion, and it makes an appearance occasionally at other restaurants – notably Clyde Common.

This blog aims to review poutines throughout the city, and spotlight the best. We’ll also review menu items that I like to call poutinesque. Think C Bar‘s S.E. Poutin, Dot’s Jalapeño-cheddar Fries, Kenny and Zuke’s pastrami fries, or Oaks Bottom Pub‘s Totchos. All, in some ways, like poutine, but lacking or substituting a key ingredient (sadly, usually gravy).

  1. Red Fox Gumbo Fries? Not poutine, but so delectable and unhealthy that it is very reminiscent.

    Oh! It’s on your site… you are very clever.
