FERNANDO RODRÍGUEZ of Fernando’s Alegría knows that it takes a combination of inspiration, innovation, and persistence to make really good food. He uses the best ingredients he can find to bring a new twist to his mother’s home cooking. You can taste it in his chicken tinga, one of the most popular recipes on the menu.
His favorite part about living in Portland is that there is so much support for small business — he loves that Portlanders have such an adventurous palette. With the love and care that goes into Fernando’s food, you won’t have to taste it more than once to fall in love.
