Friday Night Dinner Field Trip: ¡Oba!

Dinner was a little different than normal this week. Instead of picking out a theme and cooking Mary, Annie, Taylor and I decided to use the money we got from our article in MIX and treat ourselves to a girls night. Best decision ever.

We went to ¡Oba!, a restaurant specializing in Nuevo Latino cuisine and it was amazing. Everything was so fragrant and delicious and pretty. Pretty is probably a weird way to describe food, but it really was just so, so pretty.

Over blood orange margaritas we celebrated new jobs, apartments, doctors, schools and our friendship. People always think it’s weird that we’re still best friends with our friends from high school but I seriously couldn’t imagine my life without these wonderful ladies.

But back to ¡Oba!. If you’re going there you have to order the tableside guacamole. It’s delicious and they literally make it right in front of you. What could be better?! They serve both tapas and main dishes, so we went for a combination of the two and it was perfect. We had bacon wrapped stuffed jalapeños (to die for), scallop ceviche, vaca frita, and butternut squash enchiladas with the most amazing walnut sauce. If it was socially appropriate to do so we probably would have licked it right off the plate. Yeah. It was that good.

It was such a great night and I would highly recommend that if you’re ever in the Portland area you check out ¡Oba!.

Happy eating, everyone!
