Think of places that feature delicious Mexican cuisine and Portland, Maine, is usually not the first location that comes to mind. As the northern most state, Maine is better known for its lobster and seafood, along with desserts such as blueberry pie. However, as Maine's most cosmopolitan metropolis, Portland offers some surprising, delightful takes on Mexican dishes. From the upscale offerings of Zapoteca to the creative burrito magic of Bruce's Burritos to the California-inspired menu of Los Coco Tacos, Portland and the adjoining southern Maine coast offer variety and new taste sensations when it comes to Mexican classics. Call it Yankee ingenuity but Portland should be given careful consideration when it comes to sampling the best of this spicy, satisfying ethnic food.
