“We are those of potatoes” states the blackboard just outside the shop. Actually, in the city everyone knows Poormanger as “that place where they make potatoes.” Gourmet, fanciful, traditional, curious, and tasty. These stuffed potatoes are a winning dish because they manage to please everyone just as much as pizza.
Here, you will not be disappointed. The recipe is from a classic Anglo-Saxon baked potato, that meets the excellence and quality of the products in the Piedmont area and beyond. Sausage, anchovies, tomino, cured meats and cheeses imported from across the border, to the sea with fresh fish and Mediterranean ingredients.
Simplicity, imagination and taste are the keywords. The combinations of ingredients change in accordance with the seasonality of the products, giving life to combinations that will make you hungry for more: scamorza, rocket, onion cream, speck or toma, mushrooms and sausage or leeks, pumpkin, hazelnuts and goat’s fondue.
Many delicious mixes that will truly please everyone. Also, offering vegetarian, vegan, and celiac options for those in need. If not the stuffed potatoes, Poormanger’s gourmet food includes cutting boards topped with the best Piedmontese delicacies, imaginative soups, hot dishes and salads.
Since simplicity and imagination are the ingredients of the kitchen, they have a noticeable influence on the decor. Colored wooden ceramic tables, floral wallpaper, metal finishes with dangling tungsten bulbs create a highly informal vintage atmosphere that invites the customer to observe every detail.
The success of Poormanger has been solidified with the opening of a second restaurant in Via Palazzo di Città, in front of the City of Turin. Care, quality and sympathy are given to the Turinese and tourists who continue to crow the rooms of both restaurants for lunch and dinner.
