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.

Adelas is owned by mujer brava, Dora Reyna. Dora has always had dreams of being a business owner and she draws from her experience in administration and love for cooking to bring Adelas food cart to the Portland Mercado. Dora has been working with Micro Mercantes business development department to make this dream come to fruition. Dora is motivated by her family and children, who have grown together with her, to build a life from scratch since they moved to the United States in 2002. For Adelas, the Mercado is a conduit to do what she loves, while introducing her children and younger generations to the diverse roots of Mexican culture.
