[PDX] Cha, cha, cha taqueria...

A taqueria that I haven't been to before (there are few). Prices on tacos range from $1.25 (pollo, carnitas, etc) to $1.75 (fish). They had plenty of other items as well like giant burritos, quesadillas, tostadas, nachos and so on.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meat and salsas. A step up from the average, though not as good as the top 5 or so in the metro area (imo, Tortilleria y Tienda de Leleon's, Iguana Feliz, Salvador's, Uruapan, Ochoa, and La Bonita). Definitely a good option in the Lloyd area or Pearl.

We had the asada, carnitas, fish, and cha tacos. The cha is like a ground beef picadillo with raisins, almonds, and other bits. The fish is breaded and fried. They have two table salsas, a red dried chile based salsa that's very firey and a green avocado and tomatillo based salsa that is milder. Each are better than what you would get at most taco trucks or the average taqueria. Same with the meats.
