One of the best burgers I’ve had in a long time was served at the Dundee Bistro, a restaurant associated with Ponzi Vineyards in the town of Dundee, which is situated in the gorgeous rolling hills of Tualatin Valley wine country.
Friends of ours who live in nearby Sherwood treated us to lunch. There is a tasting room in another part of the building, but I suspect that most people come here to eat in the cozy dining room that features local, seasonal foods, mainly of Italian inspiration. Ponzi happens to make one of our favorite late harvest wines, Vino Gelato, that is produced every other year and only available at the winery.
The burger (☆☆☆☆) was made with succulent grass-fed beef, topped with white cheddar cheese, and sandwiched between a toasted sesame brioche bun, one of the best I’ve had in a long time. To add to the pleasure, perfectly cooked and seasoned fries (☆☆☆☆) flavored with truffle oil came as a side. At $14, the burger was a wonderful indulgence.
