Portland’s Best Hush Puppies  

You can’t truly begin to experience Portland’s Southern food until you’ve tried Po’Shines’ hush puppies. Deep-fried and golden as the sun but not too greasy, the hush puppies are so incredible it’s tempting just to order a few sides and call it a day.”

– Willamette Week

What we are all about...

We aspire to be much more than just a good restaurant that serves good food. We will be a restaurant that benefits more than just the appetites of our patrons, but offers a complete experience that enlightens the mind, body and soul. Furthermore, we strive to create an environment where food can foster conversation, and where conversation can turn into life application and change.
