Weekend Recap: Burgers, Fries & Beers

Foster Burger's contribution to Portland Burger Week: all-natural NW beef patty, pepperjack cheese, American cheese sauce, thick bacon, locally-made kimchi and spicy cilantro aioli on sesame-seed bun with Burnside IPA.

Hopworks BikeBar's version of poutine: organic wedge-cut fries smothered in vegan brown gravy, topped with cheese curds and Pig War San Juan IPA.

Ate-Oh-Ate's contribution to Portland Burger Week: Laurelhurst Market burger patty on butter-toasted sesame brichoe bun, topped with slices of fried Spam and fried egg, garnished with toasted nori, iceberg lettuce, shaved sweet onion and spicy mayo with Pelican Silverspot IPA (not pictured).

Sadly, Portland Burger Week is over and although some of the participating restaurants highlighted burgers they serve regularly, both Foster Burger's and Ate-Oh-Ate's were specially made for the event. With any luck they'll have gotten such good feedback on them that they'll be added. The poutine, however, is a regular menu item at both the BikeBar and the original location.
