Portland Mercado Editor’s Pick
Latin American, Market, Mexican
The east side’s vibrant new Latino marketplace is 7,000 square feet of authentic street food and south-of the-border shopping. Hunker on the patio with a chewy, cheesy pupusa filled with fried pork rinds from El Savadoran cart 5 Volcanes or El Gato Tuerto’s standout Cubano grilled with ham, roasted pork, mustard, and pickles. Steps away, Kaah market brims with Latin American finds, from fresh epazote to flash-fried blue and white corn tortillas, while chorizo maker Don Felipe stuffs some of the best green varieties in town with spinach, pumpkin seeds, and serrano chiles. Don’t leave without an authentic café de olla from Café Revolución, brewed in traditional clay pots and steeped with cinnamon and sweet piloncillo (molasses).
