Chef Jun Robles, the man behind the popular Neesay pop-up, will serve his eclectic-yet-comforting menu of burgers, rice bowls, and pho-gravy-topped waffle-fry poutine all summer long at The 19th Hole, a pop-up with 9 holes of mini golf hosted by Hotel deLuxe on the corner of SW 15th and Yamhill. Things kick off Wednesday through Saturday, on May 27, but you can check out the Filipino, Japanese, and Korean-inspired menu right now, below.
Robles grew up in Portland and has worked closely with six-time-James-Beard-Award-nominated Cathy Whims, cooking at Nostrana, Oven and Shaker, and Hamlet, before focusing solely on Neesay. At The 19th Hole, you'll find a whopping 50-or-so canned beverages, from cider and beer, to saké and rosé, along with Robles's menus of surprising ingredient mash-ups.
The Duke Burger comes with Chinese sausages, pineapple marmalade, and banana ketchup, and in what sounds as though it will pack a serious punch, the Chilled Ramen touts Thai chili tahini. You'll also find rice bowls with fried chicken and an umami-spiked bowl of braised pork shoulder over furikake rice. What else could you want after a round or two of mini golf?
