Tacos al pastor is the Mexican street dish per excellence; chosen as “The Best Dish in The World” by Taste Atlas Site. Tacos al pastor originated in the city of Puebla, and their name is translated to shepherd’s style tacos; and we are going to honor that name with our local version of grilled lamb tacos al pastor. Let´s go back to the roots of this tasty and awarded taco!
The dish evolved from the Lebanese culinary traditions that arrived in Mexico in the late 19th century along with numerous immigrants. It stems from the popular shawarma, but the Mexicans changed the spices, adding some “hot salsa” and grilled pineapple.
