Questions about Mexican food and Mexico?

What is TACOS 'Al Pastor'?

Tacos 'Al Pastor' without a doubt is Mexico's favourite Taco! 

Lebanese immigrants introduced the region in the early 1890's to classic shawarma: roast lamb served on a flour tortilla or pita bread (pan árabe). This creation was originally known as Tacos Arabes, and the meat cooked on a vertical, or upright, grill. What's know of in Australia as “The Kebab” - In Mexico, it’s proudly called a Trompo!

Fast forward to Puebla city in the 1930's, the descendants of these immigrants developed their own combining their heritage and Mexican cuisine, using achiote based marinade giving it the signature orange colour and tangy flavour to marinated pork that is thinly sliced and grilled upon the trompo which has now become a uniquely Mexican experience.

Our Al Pastor marinade is made using our own house-made achiote paste both recipes passed down to us from Hector's family in Mexico.
