Thank you for stopping by


What’s our story?

           “Tierra del sol” -in spanish- it means land of the sun. This phrase is a nostalgic lyric from a famous Oaxacan song called “Cancion Mixteca

where you can feel the longing of being so far away from home. The feeling of wanting to return home is why our family started this business. Tierra del Sol Cuisine brings authentic Mexican-Oaxacan style food, straight from homemade recipes that have been passed down from generations to you. Not only do we stay true to our roots by sharing the true flavors of our culture, but we pride ourselves in keeping fresh and organic ingredients in our kitchen.

So come down to Tierra del Sol! We see you as family,

and let us welcome you home.

We are a family business located at the Portland Mercado.


Our story resonates with many of the Mexican immigrants who have come to The United States in search for the American Dream. To complete the full experience of feeling at home, Tierra del Sol makes fresh handmade tortillas that are made for all of the dishes, with the blue corn at the core.


All the dishes are traditional. The menu consists of food for all diets (vegan options with a 100% gluten free kitchen) and is for all cultures. Specializing in moles, made with the spices from the Mixteca Region of Oaxaca, you can find dishes ranging from enchiladas, empanadas, to tetelas or the Del Sol Bowl. Even the tacos are renowned across Portland, being voted the best tacos

                                                                    in PDX on National Taco day in 2017. You can choose from our delicious meat choices

                                                                         of Al Pastor, asada, Pollo, carnitas, and our house made chorizo. All original recipes,

                                                                               all continued to be perfected throughout the years.


                                                                                     The seeds of this company were planted in 2013, when Tierra del Sol had its

                                                                                       grand opening at the King Farmers’ Market. Since then, we have not only

                                                                                        build up our name, and the menu, but Tierra del Sol has been responsible

                                                                                        for greatly introducing much of the Oaxacan culture to the metropolitan

                                                                                       area. Thanks to Tierra del Sol, the original house of the  Tlayuda,

                                                                                  many other restaurants have followed in our footsteps by sharing dishes that

                                                                               had not been able to make much headway.


Tierra del Sol has found much recognition after many years off hard work and effort. You can find articles in Edible Portland and the Mercury. As Well as KGW News. We share great pride in our accomplishments because of our pride in our culture. And we will continue to work hard and put Oaxaca on the map here in Portland.
