Just like meals at home, the chefs at Captain Dillie's Starlite Coach like to mix things up?because who would serve their family the same dinner two days in a row? From their Tiffany-blue truck, they serve up classic blue plate specials, meatball sandwiches, and slabs of homemade lasagna alongside fruit spritzers and banana pudding.
Pozole, a long-standing Mexican culinary tradition, is a savory soup made from pork and hominy that’s garnished with cabbage and avocado. Chef Oswaldo Bibiano brings that tradition to Portland by serving the soup every Thursday. The rest of the week, dishes balance traditional Mexican techniques (ex: scratch-made tortillas) with regional trademarks (think locally sourced ingredients and seasonal menus).
Order your burrito “a La Bonita.” That won’t change what’s inside—you can choose juicy al pastor, or opt for a meatless garden burrito with sauteed squash, carrots, and bell peppers. Requesting “a La Bonita” just means cooks will smother the burrito with a spicy sauce and sprinkle queso fresco on top.
