Tamale Boy owner Jaime Soltero Jr. grew a brick-and-mortar business out of his popular tamale truck. When it was time to build his restaurant, he wanted it to be as efficient as possible.
And he succeeded! The Tamale Boy restaurant uses about half the energy of a restaurant he formerly helped manage.

Don’t forget the food!
Not only is the building sustainable, the food is too! Tamale Boy buys organic local vegetables and meat when possible and has plenty of vegetarian and vegan options on the menu.

Tamale Boy is located at 1764 NE Dekum St, Portland OR 97211.
