Enjoy a $25 Gift Certificate to Baked Alaska in Astoria for just $18.75.
Baked Alaska was born in the spring of 2000 and was originally the concept of Chef Christopher Holen, used in mock culinary school projects such as Menus, Business Plans etc. In June of 2000 the ideas spawned a real business plan and school externship. Baked Alaska Soup Co. began as a mobile soup kitchen of sorts, traveling throughout the state of Alaska working off of a 5×8 utility trailer, towed behind a VW camper van. A sourdough bread bowl full of hot soup could be found at nearly any musical festival that summer. We’ve coined the phrase “Have Soup, Will Travel.”
On August 31, 2000 Chris, along with his wife Jennifer, opened Baked Alaska’s doors in a permanent and stationary location in beautiful old town Astoria, Oregon. The road may have ended but the dream lives on. With Chef Chris cooking and Jennifer waiting tables, this pint-sized seven table café quickly became popular.
In the spring of 2001 Baked Alaska expanded to the location it is in today. On April 20th this full service restaurant and lounge was introduced to Astoria.
