Welcome to our Weekly Food + Dining Guide! This week, our cover story is Alex Smokehouse, which is located in downtown Washougal.

Sharing space with Logsdon Farmhouse Ales in downtown Washougal, Alex Smokehouse specializes in smoked meats — wings, ribs, brisket, as well as salmon.

“We’re very proud of what we do here,” says owner, Alex Ramirez. “We love preparing the smoked meats and salmon. The menu is diverse because we listen to our customers and serve what they like. Every weekend I put out a special, and if they become really popular we put them on the menu.”

“They come here for the smoked meats — the wings, ribs, brisket, and salmon is very popular. These are very heavy meals, and I’ve worked trying to find balance to have something for everyone, so I came up with the salads.”

Alex Smokehouse offers eight salads, which can be enhanced with smoked chicken or salmon. People love them! Their sandwiches include pulled pork, smoked chicken, pulled beef brisket, and smoked turkey — that come with your side choice of cornbread, kettle chips, roasted potatoes, slaw, seasonal veggies or mashed potatoes.

Starters include smoked hot wings, ceviche, guacamole and chips, bar snacks, empanadas, smoked house nachos, pizza, sliders, truffle mac, and chipotle chicken Mac. And, they have have daily specials.

“My background is I started cooking in 1997 in NW Portland at Sammy’s Restaurant and Bar, then I moved to Milo City Café at Broadway and I worked there for about seven years,” said Ramirez. “Then, I found my passion with cooking and smoking, and moved to Clay’s Smokehouse, where I was the head chef for eight years, then I decided to work in fine dining at Oyster Bar and Grill on Alberta. Then I moved to Por que No, which is a taqueria in Portland at 48 and Hawthorne and worked there for two years.”

Eventually, he ventured on his own, started with two food carts in Portland, moved from Portland to Washougal and decided he could rent the space where he’s at today. Alex Smokehouse was born in 2014. Stop by and see what they’re all about.

Welcome to our Weekly Food + Dining Guide! This week we feature Hello Waffle Cart, which serves sweet and savory waffles at a drive-thru in Camas, and is a favorite at Farmer’s Markets and events throughout the area.

Waffle plates are growing in popularity and new options are being created to tempt your taste buds. Like the Caprese Waffle, in the cover photo. It’s a savory waffle with fresh mozzarella, pesto aioli, tomato, arugula, balsamic drippings, and makes for a fantastic meal!

“We have turkey sandwiches and people are impressed,” says co-owner, Linda Cameron, who purchased Hello Waffle last October with her husband, Will. “We cook the savory ones with bacon. Most product we have is 100 percent fresh, and the other things like bacon are pre-cooked.”

Hello Waffle recently introduced a ham and cheese waffle, which are both cooked inside the waffle and served with a side of tomato soup. They also just added a chicken waffle. Delicious!

On Saturday, their busiest day of the week, they run two drive-thru’s so you can get your waffle pretty quickly, and if you add a drink it’s just a 5-7 minute wait. You can order up to five waffles at the same time.

And you have 11 waffle plates from which to choose. Their best sellers are the fresh fruit (strawberry), Nutella banana and on savory side, the turkey sandwich and caprese. They also offer gluten free.

It’s all made from scratch.

They are currently at Vancouver Farmer’s Market, and will be back at Camas Farmer’s Market soon. They do school events, and will be at Prune Hill Elementary School, the Ilahee Elementary School carnival, at Grass Valley Elementary, and also at Shahala Middle School on May 15.

“I’ve been in the business for almost 30 years working in restaurants and I always wanted to open a restaurant,” said Cameron. “We got it going. I love food. I love serving customers. When customers see the final product they’re amazed. People get excited to see what we make.”

Hours: Open 7 days from 7 am – 2 pm.

Washougal, WA — The former Heller’s, long a staple of Washougal, is now Washougal Times.

The new owner, Ben Jackson, took ownership on January 2, and he and his team have spent considerable time and money renovating the space.

Their grand opening is this weekend, April 12-14. Friday and Saturday nights will be filled live music, by Train River Blue Grass, which is a 4-piece band from 7:30-10 pm. They’ll have a customized menu for a large volume of people with over a dozen choices.

“We’re an ode to the community and the history of the community,” said Jackson. “After spending time in the 2 Rivers Heritage Museum we have gone back to 1890 to 50 years ago, and we’re showing the rich history. We’ve had a lot of people come in and identify people — there’s my mom and there’s my dad, and they’ve given me more photos of the history.”

“There is plenty of room on the walls for more times to come. The business is about something for everyone in the community. Something for kids, for families. Heller’s legacy is strong. Their 40-plus years of business they did was something else. Also, trying to make sure we offer up new things, but maintain some of that old feel of what Heller’s was because it was great. That’s why we do Prime Rib on Friday’s and Saturday’s, that’s why we have the Heller’s sign up.”

Washougal Times
Enjoy a delicious burger with onion rings.

Food wise, Washougal Times is simply American done well. It’s splashed in with Pacific NW ingredients with burgers, BLT’s, meatloaf specials, Copper River Salmon, fresher ingredients that are all around us. It’s about looking at what the community needs, so they’ve create menus around that. Then as the community changes the menu will change, as well.

“We want to make sure we’re paying attention,” said Jackson. “We offer comment cards with each guest and chat with them about their experience. We don’t want people walking out the door unhappy. What can we do to make that right?”

The symbol that’s above the restaurant represents rushing water, which is why it’s in blue. Washougal Times is all about the community and the history and the times of this area.

“On the marquee we have the slogan drink, eat, repeat,” said Jackson. “Come visit.”

Hours: 11 am – 10 pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday. Open until 11 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Closed Monday.

Because of the purity of the water and the algea present, it allows the salmon to have the beautiful rich pink color that we look for when ordering a salmon. It also means that the salmon has an incredibly low mercury content allowing it to be safe for everyone to enjoy!

A few months ago, Nuestra Mesa decided to revamp their menu to focus more on farm to table, fresh ingredients from local farmers and staying true to that small business mentality. As you may have known, a few months ago we acquired a new head chef and he has been doing some incredible things for Mesa. It’s a fantastic dining experience!

Washougal, WA — Eight Washougal elementary students put their culinary skills to the test at Sodexo’s Future Chefs Challenge at Washougal High School on Wednesday, March 6.  This year’s theme was healthy and delicious Mexican food. 

Elementary students across the district submitted recipes and these eight were selected to participate in the cooking event.  The student creations were judged on criteria such as originality, taste, presentation, and use of healthy ingredients. The finalists prepared and presented their recipes with the help of WHS culinary students and Sodexo staff.

Although all entries were winners having been selected from a larger number of recipes entered, taking first place was Skylar Stotts from Columbia River Gorge Elementary for his Pineapple Guacamole.  Second place went to Wylie Gibson of Hathaway Elementary with her Wild Goose Fajitas.  

Other competitors were, from Hathaway, Charolotte Bisila who made Taco Salad, Abigal Picho created Tostados and Cody Jacobus built a Chicken Enchilada Casserole.  Mari-Jayne Kephart from Cape Horn-Skye made her Fabulous Mexican Rice.  From Gause Elementary Kamea Roy made Nacho Chicken Nachos and Joselyn Guajardo created Ensalades de Frijol Negro y Mango.

Jacobus explained that his recipe for Chicken Enchilada Casserole came from his mother.  “I’ve been practicing making it since I heard about this competition,” he said. “The secret is five layers of goodness with tortillas, sauce, chicken and cheese.”  

“I didn’t have to do much at all to help,” said WHS culinary student, Mason Meeks, who assisted Jacobus.  “He actually taught me how to make it.  I have never seen enchiladas fixed this way.”   Meek, a senior, took the culinary class for fun and plans to be a pilot. 

“This was one of the hardest jobs I had to do all day,” admitted Mary Templeton, WSD Superintendent who was a judge in the contest.  “I am so impressed with the creativity and innovation the kids are showing.  And they are taking this work seriously and are being very professional.  I love seeing them demonstrate many of the 21st century skills we are working to teach in our classrooms.” 

Templeton also appreciated the healthy aspect of the recipes “Fresh vegetables, lean meats, and full of flavor,” she said. “In a word, delicious!”

Nuestra Mesa — Downtown Camas

Dining
Nuestra Mesa’s salmon entree is prepared using Ora King Salmon.

The Nuestra Mesa salmon entree is prepared using Ora King Salmon. Ora King Salmon is sustainably raised in New Zealand in the purest waters of the world, utilizing the Salmons natural habits, the Salmon is raised the closest to their wild habitat. Because of the purity of the water and the algea present, it allows the salmon to have the beautiful rich pink color that we look for when ordering a salmon. It also means that the salmon has an incredibly low mercury content allowing it to be safe for everyone to enjoy!

A few months ago, Nuestra Mesa decided to revamp their menu to focus more on farm to table, fresh ingredients from local farmers and staying true to that small business mentality. As you may have known, a few months ago we acquired a new head chef and he has been doing some incredible things for Mesa. It’s a fantastic dining experience!

The result is 14 amazing new menu options, which includes three new platillos pequenos (starters), three new enseladas (salads), a new sopa (soup), one new taco, and six stunning new platillos fuertes (entrees).

We sampled the Ceviche, with wild shrimp and calamari cured in a lime tomatillo vinaigrette, derived with grilled tomatillo and tomato, pickled red onion, jalapeño, chile oil, and micro cilantro.

We also tried the Macienda Blue Corn Huraches, with rewrites, foraged mushrooms, arugula, avocado, guajillo salsa, topped with micro cilantro, and it’s served on a house made macienda blue corn cake! It’s so delicious!

And, our final sample was the Crisp Bruselas (Brussel Sprouts),which is served with chorizo, poached egg, house made chic harmonies, and topped with tajin. This is a complete change from their previous brussel sprouts recipe.

Camas, WA — It’s hard to believe, but Grains of Wrath turns one this week, and they’re celebrating Saturday with a new release of a Triple IPA called “Spoils of War.” The celebration lasts from 3-10 pm on Saturday with some fun event food, and the launch of their new Mug Club.

“We’re also releasing our first wild beer, which is a sour beer, using a wild yeast,” said co-owner Mike Hunsaker. It’s a barrel-aged Belgian style quad, aged in a Pinot Noir barrel with Cape Blanco cranberries. We also have an Imperial Stout aged in rum barrels, and we’re releasing a new shirt.”

In the 12 months since their launch, Grains has released 50 beers, won some distinguished awards, and is increasing their own brand distribution.

Greenen said IPA’s are most popular, and laugers are making a big comeback.

“Like any small business, it can be tough,” said co-owner Brendan Greenen. “Our crew has learned a lot about our customers, and we’ve learned how to react faster to change. I’d say our biggest surprise has been figuring out to increase exposure and traffic on weekdays, but we’re still new and Camas is still learning about us.”

They take pride in their brewpub, and the product made right in Mill Town.

“Our greatest successes are the quality of the beer, winning several awards,” said Hunsaker. “The very first beer in the system took a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival — out of four entries we won a medal, and we were super proud about that.”

Customers also rave about the food, especially the GOW burger, which is house-ground with brisket in a half-pound patty. It’s popular along with the Fried Chicken sandwich.

“It’s been great,” said Greenen. “We’ve been proud of the offerings and the service. There are always missteps with food or service issues, but they’ve been pretty minimal. We have a good team with 32 people right now, and it grows in the summer. Erin LeDoux and Joel Schmidt are the chefs.”

“Looking ahead — I think our goal for year two is to continue to grow our regular customer base and market Grains of Wrath to be a gathering place. We’re also increasing our distribution spread by self-distributing to other bars and pubs. It’s mostly about increasing the exposure. It’s about controlling the amount of beer so that we don’t lose control of the quality. Don’t want to lose sight of what we’re here for.”

They’ll also be encouraging more events, for example, 100 Women Who Care Clark County holds their quarterly meeting, and they hosted the Small Business Revolution reception in January.

“Camas has been really good to us,” said Hunsaker. “We’re consistent. This downtown is such a wonderful downtown. Keep people here. Keep coming.”
