On Friday, Eater asked readers to name their restaurant guilty pleasures, and the responses revealed that Portlanders largely fall into two camps of shame. There are those who feel guilty about restaurants that might elicit ire from foodie friends (conveyor-belt sushi and fast food chains were the recurring themes); and there are those whose guilt lies in consuming fat-filled gut-bombs that certain restaurants serve (Portlanders, it seems, feel particularly guilty every time they eat a burger).
With those different definitions in mind, we now present this map of the commonly named favorites (or representative guilty dishes). They're here in random order; and the complete list of guilty-pleasure dishes is at the end of the post. If your favorite is still missing from the party, do add it to the comments.
The complete list of guilty pleasures:
Thin crust Domino's Pizza · burgers at Little Big Burger · anything fattening at Le Pigeon · anything fattening at Tasty N Sons · non-ice cream offerings at Dairy Queen · a cheesesteak with potato chips at Shut up and Eat · Du's Grill · Dutch tacos at FlavourSpot · lobster agnolotti at A Cena · burgers at Humdinger's · burgers at Skyline Restaurant (with a malt) · anything at Taste Tickler · ice cream at Salt & Straw · slurpees at 7-11 · cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster · fried chicken and waffles at Screen Door · hot dogs at Gil's Speakeasy · egg and sausage sandwich at Bunk Bar · nachos at Night Light Lounge · burgers at Hollywood Burger Bar · burritos at Cha Cha Cha · burgers at Cassidy's · the burger at Bar Bar · Burgerville · Javier's Taco
