Zapoteca in Portland, Maine

Zapoteca Mexican restaurant in Portland, ME

Ah, good old Portland, Maine. Smaller than it’s trans-country doppelnamer, but still the same 90s infused sensibility, this place is a unique American city. With a summer trip to the area every year, Z and I have started exploring what this city has to offer. The best part? Portland, Maine is home to the most restaurants per capita (in a yearly competition with San Fran); aka A Foodie’s Dream Come True. This most recent trip took us to Zapoteca, in search of what we heard was the best Mexican cuisine within the Portland area.

We started with the guacamole because I love avocado in all it’s forms. Zapoteca serves theirs well shaped and on a plate with chips, which was unique, not to mention delicious.  We also [took home and] tried a trio of salsa sampler. We tried the salsa de arnacado (fire roasted cashew), salsa pepita (toasted pumpkin seeds), and salsa naranja (with orange, chilis, and asian spices). They were all amazing but that cashew salsa OMG. I put that ish on everything for the following days, from scrambled eggs (weirdly delicious) to my grilled cheese (amaze).

For the main course Z had chicken enchilladas while I dove in for a chili relleno. Z’s was delicious, smothered in sauces with a side of perfectly salted pureed beans. Mine was posibly the largest chili I’d ever seen or eaten. Smothered in a mole sauce and stuffed with delicious spices and cheese I definitely had made the right choice.

As for drinks, we highly recommend La Rumba (a rum based twist on a mexican mojito with cilantro and coconut) and the Mezcal Rita, especially if you’re a fan of the smokey savory flavors that are characteristic of Mexico’s best export.

Omg I’m finishing up this post and starting to salivate….Being self-proclaimed Mexican food snobs we were not let down in the state farthest from the border.

Love More and Worry Less





I’m ready to transition into fall. With Sheer lengthy layers, black denim, and leathered booties, the crisp season is underway. Shot during the last days of the beach season in Pine Point, ME by Z, these shots encapsulate breezy September. While I’m already missing the sand beneath my feet, I’m ready to get fall underway and am excited for the Halloween season! Give me all the pumpkin flavors!
