Holsteins Shakes and Buns Set to “Beef Up” Portland’s Burger Options with their new venue in the Pearl District.
Holsteins Shakes and Buns (1139 NW Couch Street, 503-616-4321) is bringing their creative burgers and signature boozy milkshakes all the way from glitzy Las Vegas to the heart of the Pearl with an opening planned for May 1st.
“The city of Portland and Holsteins share a common obsession: vibrant food made with the best ingredients we can get our hands on,” said Holsteins Shakes and Buns founder Billy Richardson. “Hands-down, Portland is one of the most vibrant food and beverage destinations on the West Coast, and we’re fortunate to be able to come into a city with such vibrancy—to celebrate that in the form of great burgers, shakes, local beers and sides is exciting for us.”
The contemporary burger restaurant will offer hand-crafted specialty burgers, including the fan-favorite Gold Standard Burger, featuring a dry-aged beef patty meticulously stacked with tomato confit, smoked bacon, aged goat cheddar cheese and arugula; and the exclusive-to-Portland P-Town Turkey, topped with sprouts, tomato, avocado, cucumber slaw, pepper jack cheese and Russian dressing. The menu will also feature a variety of gastro-pub inspired dishes including porter-braised short rib, Holsteins’ signature poutine and a Korean ‘Bulgogi’ quesadilla.
“We put a lot of thought into our beer menu and are excited to share it with the community.”
Holsteins Portland will also be featuring a carefully curated craft beer menu, offering an extensive line-up of local craft beers. “Beer culture is so important to the city of Portland and it’s also at the core of our food and beverage at Holsteins—great burgers and great beer really are a match made in heaven, and Holsteins PDX will be right in the middle of the Brewery Blocks—that makes it ‘beer and burger heaven’ in my book,” said Richardson. “We put a lot of thought into our beer menu and are excited to share it with the community.” Also on tap: hosted VIP brewers’ dinners, beer education events, and other special events.
The sweetest part of the deal? Holsteins Portland will serve up its trademark alcohol-infused Bam-Boozled shakes with a local twist: Tillamook ice cream. Expect selections such as the over-the-top Campfire S’mores—made with marshmallow vodka, graham cracker, chocolate sauce, toasted marshmallow, s’mores candy stick, chocolate balls and chocolate-covered graham cracker with a vanilla frosting rim, finished with a graham cracker crumble. Additional beverage selections will include a menu of signature handcrafted cocktails.
