hand-cut “dirty fries” one of the best drunk foods
The messy fries are full of scrumptious meat scraps from their house-cured pig and marinated peppers, with a finishing touch of parmesan cheese. It's a savory and cheesy delicious mess perfect while drinking a nice cold beer.
Last year Thrillist included Lardo in their Best Sandwich Shops in America, calling the shop “a special kind of awesome that does everything right.” They recommend the “porchetta” sandwich with caper mayo and gremolata condiment, but overall commend the restaurant for their made-in-house pork.
GoLocalPDX recommends Lardo and Chris Carriker’s Chefwich sandwich, a curry coconut fried chicken sandwich with caramelized onion fonduta and cabbage slaw. This month, proceeds from the sandwich will be going to No Kid Hungry.
Other drunk foods that made the list include Seattle-style hot dogs from Seattle Monster Dogs, the original pizza cookie at Arizona chain Oregano’s Pizza Bistro, and alligator quesadillas at New Orleans’ F&M.
