Random Things I Love About Portland - Su Casa

This looks like a run-of-the-mill grocery store...right?

But look what happens when you walk in the door...Color, texture, a party!

Su Casa has everything. You could live there. There's a full service restaurant with authentic Mexican food...and a Mariachi band on weekends.

Fabulous pastries for 59 cents.

I passed on the fried pig skins...

but I bought ceviche...$5 a pound. I made fish tacos...Muy bueno.

The store also has a travel agent so you can book your next trip to Guadalajara.

And an office where you can pay your bills.

And a store within the store where you can buy a party dress or a cowboy hat.

Can't wait for my next adventure...Maybe I'll even try the fried pork skins!?! Maybe not.

P.S. for Portland peeps....There's a Su Casa on SE 161st and Stark and in one downtown Hillsboro.

I LOVE this. I am not sure I will get back to Mexico anytime soon and this place feels like some of the "department" stores there. I love it - thanks for the tour!!
