Street "Tacos al Pastor" with homemade corn tortillas workshop!!

No doubt about it, Tacos al Pastor is another delicious feature of popular Mexican food. If you find yourself in Mexico, you will find tacos al pastor pretty much on every street corner. Most of the Mexican natives eat street tacos at least twice a week, particularly at the weekends with family.

How did tacos al pastor become such an integral part of Mexican cuisine?

The meat for these “pork” tacos is commonly seen roasting on vertical spits displayed with pride on street stands throughout Mexico. The spits are usually topped with pineapple, which is thinly sliced and served in the tacos. This method of cooking meat is identical to that used for the spit-roasted lamb (shawarma) brought to Puebla, Mexico, by Lebanese immigrants in the 1950’s.

The technique was copied by the Mexican taquerias (shop tacos), that substituted Lamb for pork and the herb marinating was replaced for Chilacate (dried chilies sauce with spices). The original stand for tacos al pastor still exists in many different cities around Mexico being the most delicious and famous tacos in the country served with pineapple, coriander, onion and different kind of salsas that you wont be able to resist.

Come and experience the flavours of Mexico and enjoy a delicious meal serve with a traditional drink and a lovely dessert.

No skills are needed just your lovely self and a good palate ☺ so come and enjoy with us the pleasure of cooking and eating.
