Tortilleria Y Tienda De Leon
Tortilleria Y Tienda De Leon is not a place you'll likely be just walking past, but it is a place you should make the effort to get to. Located in Wilkes, a 20-minute drive from downtown Portland, the space does triple-duty as a supermarket, tortilla factory, and counter-service restaurant where you can have an incredible casual meal at one of the few tables. Their specialty is guisados, deeply flavored stews like fiery pork and nopales or chicken mole, that you can get in tacos, combo plates, and even buy by the pound. Scan the counter case and see what looks good that day, and if you happen to need a fresh tub of salsa or a laughing emoji pinata, they’ve got that, too.
