About Anthony Banegas
I was raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. At a very young age, while helping my grandmother in the kitchen, I realized that cooking was my passion. I worked at some of the most amazing restaurants in Puerto Rico and Portland, learning and improving under the guidance of great chefs. Recently, I opened El Coquí, Portland’s only Puerto Rican food cart, at The Portland Mercado. I’m more than excited to be able to bring the authentic flavors of my island cuisine to the beautiful people in Portland.
