Praise from EatingMyWayThruPortland

This place jumps up to the top of my list of great happy hours and great fresh food.

Another mexican joint in the big city. Can it really stand up and stand out? That’s always the question. It’s surprising that people want all Mexican food to be the same and just like it was in Mexico or Texas and they want it a certain way. That seems boring to want them all to be the same way. Finding their own take on it, that is what is going to make them stand out.

Verde Cocina nailed it. It was love at first bite with this place. It’s different. It’s not what you will get at every joint or food cart and I like that, I like that a lot. It’s nothing like what I had when we lived in Arizona and I have not had much like this in California. They are farm to table with a mexican flair.

KGW Interview featuring Verde Cocina and the PFM (3.15.13)


Happy opening day of Portland Farmers Market downtown's 22nd season!

Great KGW coverage! Verde Cocina featured as one of 50 farmers market businesses that have expanded to brick-and-mortar. One of the many reasons we love being part of the Portland Farmers Market. The market has given Verde Cocina the opportunity to put our food in front of people and grow our business.
