Restaurant Review: Fire on the Mountain – Portland, Oregon

According to a Canadian I know, the Stanley Cup is a big deal; such a big deal that it calls for chicken wings! I saw this important occasion – watching Vancouver play in the Stanley Cup with an actual Vancouverian (or is it Vancouverite?) – as an opportunity to try Fire on the Mountain, a place infamous for it’s Buffalo Style Hot Sauce.

Eco-friendly food

The best part about being the person who has to go to FOTM to pick up the order is getting to try all of their sauces, which you can buy by the bottle. My personal favorites were the Jamaican Jerk, Bourbon Chipotle, The Orginal Hot Sauce and the Sweet BBQ, the last two of which we got on our wings.

Because the Canadian is a vegan, we got some vegan chicken tenders that probably have more meat in them than Chicken McNuggets and taste a helluva lot better. I actually liked them better than the wings themselves, mostly because wings have hardly any meat and these are a lot more filling.

We also got salad, which I smothered in ranch dressing. You know, to be healthy and all.

I slathered FOTM’s famous Hot Buffalo Wings sauce all over the vegan nuggets and piled them on to my plate next to bbq wings, buffalo wings and celery sticks.

Before

I dipped it all in blue cheese dressing – and of course extra famous sauce – and devoured it.
