Since we opened a month ago, at the Portland Mercado, we've had a lot of great support from the Portland Mercado community, family, friends, foodies, and more!
On June 27th, Eater PDX highlighted our truck, which started the buzz for our Grand Opening on the 30th! We were thrilled to be featured on this website! The write up exposed us to the loyal Portland foodies in a way that was completely unexpected. Check out the Eater PDX article here.
In other news, on July 10th, we were surprised to find out that we were featured on OregonLive.com! They put a list together compiling Portland's Best New Food Carts, and we came in at #8! Thanks, OregonLive!
It was an honor to be mentioned alongside some of Portland's finest such as: Tight Taco's, Black Star Grill, Dos Mundos, and many other great food carts! To read the full review, click here.
Eater PDX and OregonLive aren't the only places we're getting reviewed. The Yelp world has us rated 4.5/5 stars and they keep coming! Having people go out of their way to brag about their experience means so much to us. Yelp reviewer, An K, said, "Great mofongo. Some of the best fried chicken I've had in Portland. Definitely will be back for more." Thank you everyone that has helped create a buzz around our small business dream. To read more Yelp reviews, click here.
