Recap of my mission: Sharing some of the locations with the best fries in town because it’s important to know these things!!
Next stop: Branch Whiskey Bar on 29th and NE Alberta St, Portland Oregon
A basket of fries is a mere $5 for happy hour and just $6 all other times. These fries are incredible and I’m sure we have the duck fat to thank for that. Sage and salt are sprinkled on the fries and it comes with aioli dipping sauce and lemon wedges (don’t be afraid of the lemon, it elevates the fries to a new level!). I’ve eaten at branch a couple of times and their food and drinks are solid but holy heck they need to hire more staff to keep up with customers. The bartender can’t make drinks, take your food order and then bring everything out for you and keep up with the tables even with the bare minimum help of another staff or two. Service is slow there and god forbid you want some ketchup or something else because it will take a while to get someone to come around to check on you. The fries will keep me coming back despite the slow service.
