In PDX: Teote

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Luke had sent me a link for Teote a few months back. It looked delicious so we added it to our ever growing list of Portland restaurants we want to try. A few weekends ago, after a long afternoon of house cleaning, we cleaned ourselves up and ventured over to Teote for dinner. Just walking up the street to this place you can't help but get excited at the sight of all the bright blues, yellows and oranges that decorate the outside of the restaurant. We placed our order at the front counter and then made our way upstairs to grab a table, a cute little romantic table tucked away by the upstairs corner window.

Teote features a Latin-American cuisine with an emphasis on healthy and gluten free eating, which is quite refreshing when you eat out a lot like we do! We found the food to be quite unique, fresh and full of flavor.

The arepas (Venezuelan-style corn cakes) and the fried plantains were by far my favorites (looks for them in the photos below).
^^ El Diablo. Carlton Farms pork belly in a red chili maple sauce, topped with pickled onions, verde sauce and queso. ^^
^^ Simp├ítico. Black beans, rice, cabbage salad, salad, fried plantains and queso served with a buttered arepa ^^

Like every other restaurant that I feature here, I am going to go ahead and give this one a big fat... Recommend! When Luke and I go out and try new places, we are hardly ever disappointed. It just really shows that when it comes to food, Portland most certainly does not mess around!

  3. Yummmm... Looks delicious! I'm pretty sure that my husband and I do the same thing as you guys. It seems like all we ever do is eat and drink! And so many amazing restaurants popping up in Baltimore these days it's hard to find something we don't like. Still want to make a trip out to Portland though...
