One of the more refined Mexican dining experiences in the city, Nuestra Cocina brings a diverse menu of specialties spanning the central Mexico's renowned culinary palate with some lesser-known influences from other regions. The aroma of freshly prepared food wafting from the kitchen beckons you to the vibrant dining room teeming with the boisterous energy of kitchen staff and conversations among the lively crowd of patrons. The wooden ceilings with mounted antique-looking lamps provides good contrast to the colorful interiors. Sit at the intimate mosaic-tiled bar for some killer Mexican-inspired cocktails and Tequila martinis. The house sangria is a popular affair. The husband-wife duo of chefs Benjamin and Shannon helm the Nuestra kitchen and bring their diverse culinary experiences to the menu. There's a fair bit of variety on the menu with something for every taste. Cooking has received rave accolades with the restaurant picking up a number of awards. The intimate Mole Room is great for hosting group dinners and private functions. The enclosed wooden patio is a charming affair. Reservations are not accepted, so it's better to arrive as early as possible.
I shouldn't even tell how great nuestra cocina is, it's hard enough to get in already! the food is amazingly inventive and tasty, the drunken beans are to die for...sometimes quite a wait for a table (sit at the bar!) but sucking down fresh-squeezed margaritas helps.
The nuevo Mexican dishes and fresh made flour tortillas are good, but the Margarita's are awesome! All fresh ingredients, no mixes, and top shelf tequilla. It's a pleasure to wait for a table here. Love the veggie tamales.
The best Mexican food we have found in Portland. Fairly expensive and portions are modest, but the food is outstanding. Margaritas also are excellent. Good to show up at 5:00 when they open or you will likely have to wait.
