Cooking Channel's New 'Taco Trip' Show Hits Four of Portland's Top Taquerias

Time for a taco crawl.

Celebrity chef, restaurateur, and television personality Aaron Sanchez recently launched a new show completely dedicated to tacos. And, unlike so many other food TV shows, this one's actually quite watchable.

For The Cooking Channel show Taco Trip, he travels the country to find the best tacos and shine a light on the people who make them. Of course, Portland was one of his first stops. He checks out Oswaldo Bibiano's pulpo tacos at Uno Mas, vegetarian chiles rellenos at Verde Cocina, carnitas tacos with warm cactus salad at Tortilleria Y Tienda de Leon in Gresham, and the rajas con crema tacos at Mi Mero Mole made with roasted poblano peppers. Watch and learn a thing or two, but be forewarned: You will get very hungry.
