Amalia Vasquez's food cart Tierra del Sol has introduced Portland to the rich history of Oaxacan cuisine, some of the best in Portland. From her soulful mole-laden enchiladas to the massive tlayudas, Amalia's food is the equivalent of edible hug. Amalia's "Oaxaca De Mis Amores" is an unique presentation of Oaxacan food and culture with folklore, dance performance and tortilla making--served with delicious dishes including her fantastic mole, passed down from multiple generations of her family.
