(Second Review -- March 2012)
While hanging out with a good friend late on Saturday night, we decided to hit up the Potato Champion cart at the Cartopia food pod. The cluster of carts on SE 12th and Hawthorne provide the perfect mix of late-night grub.
My other two visits to this cart had been just OK. But the curious panda wanted to try yet another menu item: Satay Poutine, an Asian twist to the Canadian comfort dish. Instead of brown gravy, this dish contains peanut satay sauce with the cheese curds and fries.
We got a large order of the Satay Poutine ($10), but I'd be lying if I said we shared the dish. My food-loving friend basically ended up eating 99% of it. Really put a smile to my face when I see people with bigger appetites than me.
Potato Champion has a "Champ Hot" sauce, basically their spiciest. It's a dark orange color. I can't remember what's in it, but I'll assume for now that there are habaneros inside.
At least for the two of us, Satay Poutine is the way to go here. Well played, Potato Champion. Well played.
