Calaca Comelona translates as Hungry Skeleton, and the Dia de los Muertos approach to the decorating adds a wry, life-affirming smirk to this restaurant. They're justifiably proud of their freshly made, authentically Mexican dishes. But we simply enjoyed the flames in the iron stove, the...More

Another example of "Portlanders Will Eat Anything." My friend, who had eaten there before, and I, who had not, went there on a recent sweltering weeknight for dinner. There is no air conditioning, and not even a single ceiling fan....zero regard for customers' comfort. My...More

This restaurant was suggested to me by some friends as being as close to authentic Mexican food as you will find in Portland. We were a party of 6, celebrating my birthday. The service was a little slow, in that we arrived at 4:00 PM,...More

If you are looking for a chips and salsa experience, this might not be what you want. You do not get chips and salsa on your arrival, but there is a great selection of appetizers that you can choose from (even the grasshoppers are good!...More
