Borrego ahumado en mole negro. That translates to: I never knew lamb could be like this. Spicy, smoky, bathed in mole. Everything's made en casa, and you'll eat more tacos than you walked in hungry for.
Furthering the guisado cause here in PDX, this busy taqueria specializes in Mexico City-style stewed meat and vegetable-filled tacos, burritos & quesadillas served alongside unique cocktails like the Horchata Borracha and Señor Brown (mescal and apple soda). Excellent house salsas round out a Mexican experience that’s deliciously outside the norm.
This place is great. Tortillas are hand made when you order (except for the ones they fry for chips). The guacamole is really excellent. Tequila is priced VERY fairly.
The thing to keep in mind is, this isn't an enchiladas-and-nachos kind of place. They make about 5 or 6 different stewed dishes each night, from a huge rotating menu. There is normally beef, chicken, seafood, pork, and a couple of vegetarian options. You just order tacos or burritos made from those 'guisados'. This makes it worthwhile to keep coming back, assuming you like variety.
I was so excited to try this place, i love mexican food. But i was disapointed. Everything was bland. When the person i perceived to be the owner or manager asked me how my food was i foolishly thought he wanted feedback. I said my pork was lukewarm almost cold and he basically argued with me. He then said that in Mexico this dish is served at room temperature. In SE Portland too apparently. I like my food hot. Won't be back.
