Jonathan's was among the barrage of original reviews that I uploaded when I first started this blog. Over a year and a half ago, I went with some co-workers, but this time, I returned alone to satisfy a craving that had built up for five days.
I happened to be in town late last month and I remembered one of my buddies on Yelp mentioning Jonathan's has poutine. While it's usually made with fries, brown gravy, and cheese curds, Jonathan's departs from such tradition.
The poutine here ($8.99) is on the appetizer menu. It's probably is at least a pound of french fries, creamy chicken-based gravy, and shredded cheddar cheese. Panda gluttony must commence.

Usually, one can't go wrong with melted shredded cheese. Here, in all likelihood, it was a packaged, processed shredded cheese after noticing some of that cheese "melting" a bit weird. Or turning a weird orange. But it's panda logic to just keep stuffing my face regardless. I'd love it if they just shredded a real block of shredded cheese if they had to. Or just cough up more money to get local cheese curds from Tillamook.
I received great service. There were probably only a couple other guys in the pub at the time; I was there just a few minutes after 11 a.m. I thought the place was clean and inviting. Staff dressed professionally.
