Dots Cafe (2521 SE Clinton St)

Their wallpaper is velvet and covered in eccentric, brightly colored paintings. The music is dark, disco-y and groovy. They have BACON CHEESE FRIES. (Can you imagine???) I tried to take a picture of them, but the room was so dark (it was a cold and rainy Saturday and even with the door open, there was not enough light for my weak little camera phone) that I couldn't get a clear shot. So, you will just have to take my word for it that the fries are excellent. Specifically, the fries were salty, cheesy, crispy, stringing cheese on my fingers as I picked them up. Exactly. Excellent.

They also have delicious-sounding vegan dishes with tofu sour cream, but I wasn't quite in a vegan mood. I had a black bean quesadilla that was hot and crispy, melty and full of onion, jalepeno and cumin-y flavors. I have a feeling that my relationship with Dots is only just beginning. I can't wait to see what's cooking for my next visit.

Dots only accepts cash. But they have an ATM in the bar in case you forget. Oh and they also have other varieties of cheese fries that I would encourage you to check out for yourself.

I want to go there just for the wallpaper.

Oh, Dots! It was a favorite hang out of mine when I lived in PDX. Perfect for a late night treat after a movie at the Clinton Theater. Ah, Memories.

But the question becomes... did you go to the Rocky Horror Picture show in the Clinton St. Theater afterwards?
