adelas

From birria to huaraches and going beyond crafting delicious and beautiful dishes, Adelas' traditional Mexican fare will transport you straight to the mercados of mexico.  Adelas is opening their very first business at the Mercado, partially to share the wonderful news that each region of mexico has a variation of the comfort soup, pozole! Pozole verde, rojo, and blanco will all be made fresh daily by Adelas. There are some good pozoles in Portland, nuestros amigos, but these varieties are worth every scoop. At Adelas, you will find comfort, familiarity, and food made with mucho amor.
