Stopped in this place I had previously spotted on a drive-about, about an hour north of Portland on the road to Astoria. St. Helen’s is an old, old shipping port on the Columbia River, and the Klondike was originally a rooming house for sailors and mill workers. It being between lunch and dinner, we eschewed the entrees, and ordered a half-dozen appetizers to share. Klondike’s version of sliders was flank steak, with chunky bleu cheese and pickled purple onion curls on a baguette. It (and everything) was delicious. The special of the day was a “sausage dog” (see pic below and note potential victim hiding under the sign), which we passed on when they told us it was from Zenner’s, a local Portland dog company. Zenner’s makes great products, but this was billed as “andouille”, and we’re always disappointed with andouille outside of Louisiana and/or France. If you’re ever in this area, checkout the Klondike. Great menu. Fun staff.
