Tazón! Pozole!
Thursday, January 18, 2018; 5-9pm
Tournant, 920 NE Glisan Street, Portland

Stop by Tournant to enjoy pozole, a traditional hearty Mexian soup made with hominy, stewed meat, and vegetables. “In many regions of Mexico, pozole is served only on Thursdays and is a wonderful excuse to gather friends and family around the table. We’re continuing this tradition at Tournant with Tazon (which means “bowl” in Spanish) on the Third Thursdays of each month–until it gets too hot for soup!” Bowls of pozole start at $12 and you can opt for pork rojo, chicken verde or verduras (vegan), plus tasty add-ins. No reservations necessary. More information. Continue reading “Portland Area Food Events, January 18-25”
