Amazing food, attentive staff and great service. Found this place by accident and will definitely be back. It’s pretty small - make a reservation!

Authentic Boricua. This restaurant serves authentic puerto rican food. No imitation nor fusion stuff, this is Real Rice and Beans with a great selection of beef, pork, chicken and seafood. Enjoyed the chuleta kan kan with a side of Mofongo.

Prices are reasonable and the place is EXTREMELY clean. Even the bathrooms are sparkling.

What a great introduction to Puerto Rican food! The staff was friendly and enthusiastic, the place was jam-packed, and we all enjoyed the food - especially the ‘lasagne’ made from beef, cheese and plantains. We’d come back for a fun night out and delicious food and drinks!

We enjoyed our food at Boriken with one exception, the pork chop. It was not as fresh and tender as the rest of the food. Otherwise we liked the other items; pulled pork roast, empanadas, yellow rice with peas, plantains.
My friends said they would return; I would not only because they don't have chairs, just backless benches at each table. Just my personal preference. I want to sit back and relax at dinner. Otherwise the restaurant is warm and the wait staff is very attentive and helpful.

We went during Restaurant Week so a reservation was key! We ordered bacalaitos (cod fish fritters) for appetizers - yummy! Then I ordered soupa de gandules (green pigeon peas soup) with a mofongo (plantain dish). I was so impressed. Very authentic Puerto Rican food. My husband enjoyed the chicken chicharrones with rice and beans. We would have stayed a while longer but it was a little crowded due to the event.

The service and food were phenomenal. The owner Awi, was very personable. She made us amazing cocktails. I highly recommend the mofongo! The cuisine was just like grandma used to make. We found our new Sunday dinner spot.

After reading so many positive reviews I was excited to try Boriken. It did not disappoint! The food was delicious. The service was exceptional. Our server was very helpful explaining the various dishes and making recommendations. My only complaint was that the food was so filling I didn’t have room to try one of their house made pastries for dessert! I came for lunch, next time I will come for dinner and try some of the enticing appetizers and the pastries.

Great service and food in a casual setting. We had the sampler appetizer plate and pork mofongo. It was all delicious and the portions were plenty for two hungry people. Boriken is definitely on the short list of our favorite restaurants in the Beaverton area.

This place is a go-to lunch destination. The food is vibrant and flavorful, the ambience is quaint and inviting, and the employees are so friendly and happy you're there. I'd try to write a recommendation for something specific, but honestly - everything I've ever had there has been fantastic. I'll continue to come back!

Haven been to Puerto Rico Recently I had high expectations. That said my experience was, to put it nicely, “Bland”. It was like eating in my mother’s dinning room and my dad was the cook. The food was authentic but not elevated, A home cook not a chef. Pretty pricey for Dad’s home cooking
