Unique Eats: Portland or Portlandia?

Portlandia

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein in Portlandia

Ever since the sketch comedy series Portlandia premiered on IFC last year, I can’t help it: you say “Portland,” I hear “Portlandia.”

That being said,  I can’t wait to get a closer look at Portland’s incredible foodie scene this Sunday at 10PM on Unique Eats: Portland.

As we know from the myriad of (fictional?) characters that Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein play, residents of Portland are passionate about many things, with food high on the list (other interests include Feminist Bookshops, scavenging for dinner in dumpsters (aka recycling), and reading every publication ever.)

They love to pickle:

They’re passionate about local food sources:

While real Portland residents probably aren’t hiking 30 miles down the road to examine their chicken dinner’s former pasture or pickling every food item they come across, they are dining on some incredible Unique Eats:

These Bacon Cheeseburger Dumplings (from a food truck!) are looking and sounding pretty awesome right now. Classic American comfort food just got global:

Bacon Cheeseburger Dumplings Recipe

The iconic American burger collides with the Asian app to create something totally new, and totally Portland.

Since we’re talking about unique foods, how about Asian street food turned on it’s head? Exhibit A: fried pigs’ ears (Huu Muu Thawt):

Huu Mu Thawt fried pigs ears

Who would have "thawt" that fried pigs' ears could be so delicious?

Catch Unique Eats this Sunday at 10PM EST to catch all of Portland’s hottest foodie haunts and dishes.

    SPECIAL ATTN LEE ANNE WONG cooking channel tv . com

    I was watching an episode on Unique Eats one day and it talked about a restaurant in New York City that served up a " 7 Bone Beef " dinner . I loved it. I promised myself that the next time I was in New York, I'd go there. Ms. Wong made my mouth water. WHERE IS IT ????

    I must have it !! I'm going to NYC in July of this year, and I've gotta have some "7-Bone Dinner" . Where is it at !!

    I Love the Cooking Channel !!

    Luv, kenny Thomas, Riverside, California.
