While we may not be as known for Mexican food the way other West Coast cities are, Portland can hold its own when it comes to its burritos. Whether packed with slow-cooked meats or vegan proteins, these handheld, dense, soul-satisfying, tortilla-wrapped meals are never too far away. Relative newcomers join long standing institutions, while taquerias and food carts both serve stellar versions of this culinary staple.
Even with COVID-19 changing the way people eat and operate, one thing has been constant: burritos. While many foods get cold or don’t hold up on the ride back home, burritos are wrapped in their own warmth, handheld for easy on-the-go eating, and self-contained with their sauce and toppings. While this map focuses on burritos, feel free to check out our taco map for something a little more bite-sized. This list is not ranked, but ordered north to south. Did we miss your all-time, ride-or-die favorite? Go ahead, argue in the comments.
