Bunk, Fire On The Mountain, Sizzle Pie and Killer Burger Add To Moda Center Food Options
While you won't get free chalupas this season at the Moda Center, you will have the option of stuffing your face with some of the finest food Portland has to offer with the addition of four local restaurants and food carts
-- Bunk Sandwiches, Fire On The Mountain Buffalo Wings, Killer Burger and Sizzle Pie -- to the Moda Center concourse.
“Bringing new life and excitement to the Rose Quarter is strategically important to the business direction of our organization as an entertainment company,” said Trail Blazers President and CEO Chris McGowan via press release. “We know the value of a positive food and beverage experience, and we’ve heard our fans say they want more locally-sourced selections from restaurants and vendors they recognize. These new options represent major steps in that direction.”
The additions of Bunk, Fire On The Mountain, Killer Burger and Sizzle Pie are one of the first major changes implemented in terms of food service at the Moda Center since Ovations Food Services was replaced by Levy Restaurants
“Pairing the action on the court with the dynamic flavors of the Portland culinary scene takes Blazermania to a new height this year,” said Michael Pulscak, Executive Chef for Levy Restaurants. “We are excited to partner with home town artisans, chefs and restaurateurs to bring the very best of the City into the arena.”
The team has also announced that local "Guest Chefs" will offer "signature dishes and award-winning recipes" in the Courtside Club and Sphere bar. No official word on what restaurants those guest chefs will hail from.
While I've never been to Sizzle Pie or Killer Burger, I can fully endorse the additions of Bunk and Fire On The Mountain. Bunk is one of my Top 3 places to get a sandwich in Portland, while Fire On The Mountain, particularly the original location on Interstate Avenue, is my go-to spot for chicken wings. Their Spicy Peanut sauce is as good as wing sauce gets.
