Al Pastor Pork Tacos

with pineapples and chipotle pepper

$9.95 per serving

Al pastor is the result of some beautiful cultural collision; Lebanese immigrants came to Mexico and shared their roasting-meat-on-a-spit ways. The Mexicans brought in their seasonings and the pineapple, and the deliciousness of al pastor was born. We've hewed pretty close to tradition here, filling our tacos with cilantro, shallot, and a spicy adobe mayonnaise on top of pork. The melding of new and old, tradition and innovation… culinary magic at its finest.

    Zest lime, halve, and juice. Stem and mince cilantro. Halve and peel shallot. Cut half the shallot into thin strips and other half into ¼" dice. Mince garlic.
