Wikipedia says: Al pastor (Spanish: “Shepherd style”) is a dish developed in Central Mexico, likely as a result of the adoption of thes hawrma from Lebannese immegrants to Mexico. Having derived from the shawarma, it is also similar to the Turkish Doner kebab and the Green gyros. Whereas döner is usually lamb-based (thus the “shepherd style” name), gyros and tacos al pastor in Mexico are made from pork.
Today they go on our specials menu because tacos remind me of summer and it feel like summer outside. We are marinating our pork with the traditional pineapple as well as topping them with pineapple and serving them on a flour tortilla, delish!
