When I went first time to Mexico (at it is almost 10 years ago when I was working in Switzerland for Mexican company), everyone told me that I have to try “tacos al pastor”. Apparently, one of the best tacos for Mexicans. I was very young and to be honest, I did not have any clue what I am going to eat or try. I was at the age, that I lived with yogurts, bread and simple cooking and my parents were wondering if I am not starving in Switzerland 😀
Tacos al pastor has been developed mainly in Central Mexico as I have been told and it is based on shawarma grilled meat, related to Lebanese who came to Mexico. I would say, you can compare it somehow with Greek gyros or Turkish kebab, just made form pork. Well, I have tried it there the first time I went and since then… every time we go there, I am happy to try them again and again 🙂
These tacos have become “must” when we are there 🙂 I have never tried to prepare them at home (who knows why) and today, while having rest during lunch time, I have found this nice recipe. So maybe… one day… I will give it a go!
Have a great evening!
