What is Taco Al Pastor?

We asked Head Chef Amber Doig about Taco Al Pastor – “The quintessential Mexico city street food. Layers of thinly sliced pork, usually marinaded simply with a blend of smoky chillies, spices and cider vinegar, lovingly impaled on an upright spit, roasted and shaved onto a warm tortilla, then adorned with white onion, cilantro, lime and your favourite of combination salsas, a taco lovers simple pleasure.

Origins likely from Lebanese immigrants and their introduction of shawarma to the region “Tacos arabes” which is spit roasted lamb on a pita like bread. How it made the jump to using pork, switching to corn tortilla, or adding Adobo or how a piece of juicy pineapple was involved in its evolution isn’t totally clear, and no one cares. Its proudly Mexican and a much loved night life staple if not an absolute necessity, to those who need tequila and beer soaked up by its tasty, texturally diverse, fresh, sweet and sour goodness. In my opinion its best enjoyed standing up, with a beer or Mezcal in hand and in good company”
