Le Pigeon

Portland Hamburglers "Burgermeister" and "Hamburgler" enter the madness that seems to be the name-drop of the Portland "foodies" scene. We are not here for that though, we are here for the burgering.

Seems like a lot of the great burgers in town share something in common with the Le Pigeon burger: Strawberry Mountain Natural Beef. The Slow Bar and Wildwood use it, maybe more should as well.

Burger is excellent. It's nice that it is only $9.00 with potatos ($11.00 with a salad) and makes you think about how much of a jump in quality from your run-of-the-mill diner burger that is the same price with a tip. It's $0.05 more then many places around town that specialize in burger, but 10 times more delicious. [ Trying really hard not to write a "review", but it was really good. ]

That dessert you see there is nuts. It's hot sizzling bacon on ice cream and cornbread with syrup.

No pickle, but they get one anyways.

Honorary Bonus Pickle!

the burger at Cassidy's in PDX weighs in as a heavy hitter. For $5 it is one of the best I've had in the city.
