The owners of Ox and winners of the 2017 James Beard Award for Best Chef Northwest, Greg Denton and Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton are getting into the sandwich business, the O reports. Ox Box will be a lunch-time pop-up located in Ox’s parking lot, and it will serve choripan sandwiches — chimichurri-dressed sandwiches popular in Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, and Brazil — seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ox Box launches Tuesday, May 30, and will run through Labor Day, at 2225 NE MLK Jr. Blvd.
So what’s going into those sandwiches? The O says “chorizo sausages, chorizo-spiced albacore, and provolone-topped eggplant, on soft rolls” — all cooked on a wood grill in the parking lot. Other dishes include sides like grilled pickle spears and Ox's fried empanadas and ensalada rusa. Drinks will be furnished by Ox’s Whey Bar.
Ox Box comes on the heels of The Country Cat’s Ferne and Holly pop-up. Well-known Portland chefs are finding creative ways to attract attention this summer.
