What is Tacos Al  Pastor?

If there's one dish that encapsulates the vibrant spirit and rich culinary heritage of Mexico, it's Tacos al Pastor. These iconic tacos are a testament to the country's history, blending indigenous flavours with Spanish influences in a mouthwatering symphony of taste.

At first glance, Tacos al Pastor may seem like a simple street food offering, but delve deeper, and you'll uncover a story centuries in the making. This beloved dish traces its roots back to the Lebanese immigrants who settled in Mexico during the 19th century, bringing with them the tradition of spit-roasting meat. Over time, these immigrants adapted their culinary techniques to incorporate local ingredients, giving birth to what we now know as Tacos al Pastor.

The star of the show is the marinated pork, typically seasoned with a blend of spices including achiote, garlic, and citrus juices. The meat is then skewered onto a vertical spit, reminiscent of the shawarma stands found in the Middle East. As the pork slowly rotates and caramelizes on the spit, the aromas waft through the air, drawing in hungry passersby with their irresistible allure.

When it's time to serve, the tender slices of pork are shaved off the spit and piled high onto small, soft corn tortillas. Topped with diced onions, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime, each taco is a flavor explosion waiting to happen. But what truly sets Tacos al Pastor apart is the addition of pineapple, adding a sweet and tangy contrast that perfectly balances the savory flavors of the pork.

Whether enjoyed from a bustling street corner taqueria or savored at a trendy Mexican restaurant, Tacos al Pastor are more than just a meal – they're a celebration of culture, tradition, and the joy of simple pleasures. So the next time you find yourself craving a taste of Mexico, why not indulge in the irresistible charm of Tacos al Pastor? Your taste buds will thank you for it.

What is Tacos De Barbacoa ?

Originating from the ancient cooking methods of the indigenous peoples of Mexico, Tacos de Barbacoa are a true testament to the artistry and skill of Mexican cuisine. At its core lies the star ingredient: tender, succulent lamb, slow-cooked to perfection until it practically melts in your mouth.

But what sets Tacos de Barbacoa apart from other tacos? It's all in the preparation.  Juicy cuts of lamb, marinated in a symphony of spices and seasonings, then wrapped in Agave leave (in our case we use banana leaves because they're not available here in Australia) and slow-cooked in an underground pit, infusing every bite with smoky, savoury goodness.

The result? A flavour explosion that's nothing short of divine. Each bite of Tacos de Barbacoa is a journey through layers of complex flavours, from the rich, melt-in-your-mouth beef to the subtle hints of garlic, cumin, and chili that dance on your taste buds with every bite.

But perhaps what truly sets Tacos de Barbacoa apart is the experience. It's not just about the food—it's about the tradition, the culture, and the sense of community that comes with every bite. Whether enjoyed with family on a lazy Sunday morning or savored at a bustling street vendor, Tacos de Barbacoa are more than just a meal—they're a celebration of life, love, and the vibrant spirit of Mexico.
