PORTLAND, Ore. (January 28, 2017) – On Sunday, January 29th, 180, Portland’s first xurreria, will celebrate its first birthday. 180 will be giving away free nutella bites to ring in the birthday, and thank Portland for a whole year of support. Visit on Sunday, January 29th, and receive free two nutella bites, 180’s newest xurro relleno creation stuffed with creamy nutella. Each order comes with two nutella bites, free with any purchase while supplies last. The nutella bites will be available on the menu beginning Monday, January 30th, and include six bites for $4.50. The perfect celebratory treat, morning indulgence or a satisfying snack; fresh, made to order, authentic xurros were an integral part of chef José Chesa and partner/chef David Martin’s childhood growing up in Spain, they along with co-owner Cristina Báez opened 180 last winter to much acclaim, receiving recognition from Bon Appetit Magazine and Portland Monthly Magazine. The small shop, located at 2218 NE Broadway, Portland, Ore., features a large open kitchen allowing guests to watch as xurros are made to order in a xurros machine imported from Spain.
Fried at 180° Celsius (hence the name), xurros are served made to order, ready to be dipped in housemade hot, drinking chocolate, marshmallow cream, caramel/peanut butter sauce and/or enjoyed with a hot coffee. The menu features chocolate coated and sugar and cinnamon sprinkled xurros as well as a host of other treats from spain. A variety of filled xurros are available including traditional crema catalana, dulce de leche, and the more Portland-centric flavor, chocolate and Jacobsen’s salt. 180 also welcomes local chefs each month to create their own xurro creations, inspired by their favorite sweets and memories from childhood, donating the proceeds to charity. Xurros, dipping sauces, and coffee are available through Portland delivery service, Caviar. Large orders of three dozen or more xurros require 24 hours notice, call the store directly at (503) 477-9163 or check out Caviar for ordering options.
