Potato Champion

Portland, Oregon

Belgian Fry Cart

Food Court or Street Vendor

Potato Champion is Portland, Oregon's only late night fry cart! We are located at the corner of SE 12th and Hawthorne Blvd. in the parking lot next to Tiny's Coffee.

Our fries are in the authentic Belgian style, meaning that after the potatoes are peeled, cut, and washed, they are first blanched at a low temperature in the fryer. This cooks the potato without crisping it and brings out the potatoes' natural fragrance. The fries are then left to sweat out the oil for at least a half hour. They are fried to order at a much higher temperature to crisp the outside of the fry while the inside remains soft and fluffy.
