The Story: Güero, a food cart in SE Portland focusing on tacos and tortas has expanded with a second cart in downtown at the Alder food cart pod on SW 10th. The downtown Güero focuses on tortas, the traditional Mexican sandwich that is more than just a sandwich. I picked up the Carnitas al Guero with Carleton Farms pork marinated in citrus and a house blend of spices. Served on a charred bun with chili aioli, cabbage, cilantro and Yucatan pickled onion, I added egg and cheese for fun. A burly sandwich to rival some of the best in the city. An eruption of flavor in every bite.
Güero is now open downtown, so there isn’t a reason you can’t visit. Let them know Food Carts Portland sent ya
