Never put up my Savoy burger meals because my phone that had my notes got stolen. But I'll do my best....
I think Savoy is a good neighborhood place, bordering on destination-worthy because of some of the unique items they have. They also have a good selection of burgers, including daily specials.
And I love that they're keeping the Portland Cutlery sign alive. They also have one of my favorite sides in Portland for a burger, the fried cheese curds:
No, it's not an official side. It's an extra. But they're pretty good, crisp, not overly greasy, yielding to decent melty cheddar. And you can get them on a burger occasionally, too, the Cheesehead:
The gravy may be overkill. It's basically a poutine burger. Those onion rings aren't bad either:
Crisp, fat, not overly heavy.
The fries have improved over the years. They're pretty good now. I don't know if the poutine is one the menu all the time. I don't remember seeing it on my last visit. But occasionally they have it and it's a decent rendition with adequate cheese curds and gravy on good fries.More in the next post...
