The boar is back. In 2014, Taqueria Nueve was resurrected from Portland’s restaurant graveyard, transplanted to a shocking fuchsia dining room in the former home of Beaker & Flask. Chef-owner Billy Schumaker’s menu of accessible Mexican plates—grilled Oaxacan hanger steak and tart ceviche, plus a garlicky Caesar—is as good as it was the day the original T9 shuttered in 2008. But Nueve’s two greatest contributions to Portland’s Mexican scene are its super-crispy boar tacos (boar collar slowly cooked with oranges, marjoram, and Mexican oregano, then caramelized in lard) and a clean, strong margarita. Our advice? Take a bite. Wash it down with a swig of perfectly balanced lime and tequila goodness. Repeat all summer long.
