History

Al Pastor

Al Pastor comes to us from central Mexico with origins in Puebla. It’s typically prepared with marinated pork meat stacked on a trompo (vertical spit grill) similar to shawarma. This dish's flavor profile includes smokey notes of mild guajillo chile, earthy achiote paste which give it its distinct color, and pineapple. Recipes vary from family to region sometimes including notes of cinnamon, clove, cumin and more. 

Some of the most skilled taqueros are known to catch falling shreds of Al Pastor with a tortilla lined hand and top each taco with a small slice of grilled pineapple, diced onion, minced cilantro, and salsa of choice (we prefer salsa de aguacate).
