Eat This Now: Bar Snacks
Five drinking-food favorites for soaking up the booze from our annual list of Portland's best bars.
Bar Bar’s Classic Burger
A juicy, no-fuss standby piled with shredded lettuce, slathered in house ketchup and “secret” Bar Bar sauce on a pillowy Alessio potato bun
Barwares’ Arepa Sandwich
Korea meets Colombia in an arepa sandwich stuffed with braised short rib, hoisin, kimchi, cilantro, and mayo.
The Bent Brick’s Duck Fat Jojos
Slabtown’s classy tavern scores with massive potato hunks fried in duck fat and served with creamy house ranch dressing.
Grab a sake at Janis Martin’s cult Asian hideaway and order her spicy, salty chef’s-choice menu at the price of your choosing: delights like black cod with Korean blood sausage and oysters with kimchi shaved ice await.
Aviary’s Brussels Sprout Nachos
Not quite Asian. Not quite nachos. But all the deliciousness of both. Charred brussels sprout leaves are adorned with chocolate chile sauce, herb crème fraîche, and cotija.
