Portland Happy Hour: Cha Taqueria & Bar

Posted by Kelly

What: Cha Taqueria & Bar
Where: 305 NW 21st (at Everett), Portland
When: 4-6pm Mon-Thurs, 3-6pm Fri-Sun, and 10pm-12am Late Night Fri & Sat
Honey's Heart: Sangria

I'm embarrassed to admit that I hadn't been to Cha Taqueria and Bar happy hour until about a month ago even though it's in my neighborhood. When I told Laura I hadn't been her reaction was, "what kind of happy hour goer are you?" You may think (at least I did) that since I have this blog I'm pretty excellent at happy hour attendance, but I guess I could step it up...

We went during the couple days when there was actually sun and we were able to sit outside at one of their long community tables. We each ordered Sangria Roja ($5.50) and snacked on complimentary chips with beans and guacamole.

Eager to hear about Laura's Europe trip we decided to focus quickly on the menu and order. Since Laura and Sofi had been here before I asked for suggestions, but they basically like it all. Sofi and I shared the Nachos ($5) and Ceviche de La Casa ($6). Ceviche is always refreshing on a sunny day, the only thing I didn't like about this one was the green olives in it. I LOVE green olives, but I seemed to avoid them in favor of the fish, cucumbers, and avocado.

Laura went with the Santo Burrito ($5) with Pastor Pork. Sof and I managed to steal a few bites, delish! 

Here is the entire happy hour menu including enchiladas, taquitos, picaditas, tacos and more!
