About Mi Mero Mole
Chef-owner, Nick Zukin, trained with Diana Kennedy at her home in Mexico and uses several of her recipes on the menu. Mi Mero Mole serves traditional dishes from Mexico City. Corn tortillas are made fresh using ground nixtamal, instead of commercial Maseca, ground corn flour. Everything served, including moles, salsas, rice and beans, is made from scratch. All tequila is 100% agave, and the selection, emphasizing craft spirits, is the most carefully curated in town. Mi Mero Mole has two locations. Its Northwest Portland location is at 32 NW 5th Avenue in Chinatown, and its Southeast Portland location is at 5026 SE Division Street in the Richmond neighborhood.
