According to nearly 40 burrito experts, King Burrito and Taquería y Panadería de la Santa Cruz really know what they’re doing

King Burrito serves the best burrito in Portland.

To pay homage to the beloved burrito, we compiled our third-annual ranking of our country’s best. In order to do this, we supplemented our past research with suggestions from our knowledgeable editors, as well as asking you, our readers, to write in, letting us know where you get your favorite burrito. We then dug through online reviews and best-of lists that were published since our 2014 ranking to make sure we haven’t missed any great new ones.

We divided the more than 130 burritos that made our shortlist by region and asked nearly 40 burrito experts — among them the Burrito Eater, Charles Hodgkins, and Justin Bolois of First We Feast— to weigh in and vote. We presented the 35 that came out on top, and as it turns out, two reside in Portland, Oregon.

King Burrito is a true local gem, turning out expertly prepared creations that are wildly delicious. While the carnitas and carne asada are stellar, they named one offering the King Burrito because it’s the best on their menu, and it’s a monster: chile relleno, refried beans, and steak picado (diced steak mixed with tomatoes, onions, and chiles), topped with homemade avocado sauce, and served in a giant flour tortilla.

The steak picado burrito is so good, it placed #7 in our survey, out performing the only other burrito from Portland to make the list: the al pastor at Taquería y Panadería de la Santa Cruz (#35). This means that while both are worthy of high praise, King Burrito’s steak picado gets the title of the Best Burrito in Portland, and the seventh best in the country.


Farmers’ Markets Across America: Portland, Oregon

By mid-July, farmer’s markets across the United States are starting to look downright decadent. No longer limping along with only spring greens and radishes, at this moment farmers’ stands are filling with exactly the kind of bounty we crave in summer markets. We’ve been so impressed by the variety of products being hawked at our own local markets that we wanted to see what’s looking good this week in other places. We sent photographers on a mission to capture the essence of their local farmers’ markets in pictures.

First up is the Portland Farmers Market at Portland State University, as seen by local photographer Michael A. Muller.

Located in downtown Portland on the edge of the Portland State University, the main Portland, Oregon farmers’ market is just one of eight that dots the city throughout the growing season. Because stands at the market are evenly split between those selling local produce and comestibles for carting home, and those selling coffees and foodstuffs to enjoy during the market, it can be a smart place to head on a Saturday whether you’re shopping for a week’s worth of meals or just hoping for a light lunch.

Michael Muller had this to say: “The downtown Portland farmers’ market is one of the best I’ve seen in the country on par with all of the good California ones but with the addition of the fresh mushrooms, berries, and fresh seafood which kind of sets it apart.”

Being surrounded by leafy shade trees and serenaded by local musicians while you shop only heightens the experience. One of Michael’s favorite stands is Spring Valley Organic Farm, which comes to the Portland market from Albany, Oregon with a broad range of seasonal produce. Another favorite is Olympic Provisions, a charcuterie company with restaurants in Portland. For meals ready to eat on site, local Portland restaurant Verde Cocina has a stand that does the trick.

Michael explains, “They make fresh tortillas on site–the old-fashioned way–and they use veggies from the market and griddle them up to make tacos.”
