Taqueria Lindo Michoacan – Portland

Doesn’t look like much, does it? At the time of this photo they were closed for their annual January trip back to Michoacan. Let me tell you, these fine people serve the best al pastor taco I’ve had anywhere, and that includes my travels in Mexico.

Not only is this a great place for a nosh, but it’s also parked at Village Merchants, a wonderful resale shop full of treasures. You may also enjoy:

Find them both in Portland on SE Division and 41st.

Taqueria Lindo Michoacan:

Los Molcajetes – McMinville, OR


What can we say about this place? Right on 3rd street in downtown McMinville we’ve walked past it a thousand times. We finally went in. Well, there’s something for everyone in the world.

Spacious, attractive and clean this is a good place to bring picky and/or unadventurous eaters. People who prefer to not be challenged – kids, grandparents, etc. I would not go there for the food itself. While not actually bad, it is meh. Lacking el sabor that is the magic which animates so much of the regular comida to be found.

It’s unlikely we’ll ever go back here to eat, but it is a comfortable place to sit.
