Contemporary Cajun/Creole


    Located in Portland’s NE 28th bustling restaurant row, Tapalaya serves innovative Cajun/Creole cuisine made from scratch, with love.  Our dishes are served on small-plates, tapas-style, which are great for sharing and pairing.  Tapalaya has a fun, funky, and relaxed atmosphere with cheery New Orleans art adorning the walls.

    We use antibiotic-free meats, cage free eggs and source produce from local farms and the farmer’s market, whenever possible.  Tapalaya, which is a combination of the words tapas and Jambalaya, has also launched an Asian-inspired special menu, thanks to our very own Chef Anh Luu.  Our menu features Cajun/Creole classics like Red Beans & Rice and Jambalaya alongside dishes inspired by Chef Anh Luu’s Vietnamese heritage such as Boudin Sausage Eggrolls and Crawfish Étouffée with Roasted Chiles, Lemongrass, and Shrimp Paste.
