day 75

5x7 print available here.

My no. 2 choice at taquerias is usually al pastor. This delicious schwarma-like porky concoction is usually made from slices of either shoulder or loin, marinated, stacked together, and roasted on a spit. It is greasy, fatty, spicy and oh so yum. The more cinnamon and spiciness involved, the better. And, fun fact, it was likely a Mexican adaptation of spit roasted meat brought to Mexico from Lebanese immigrants. see?

These recipes sound delicious, but it really won't be the same without the vertical spit. At least I don't think so.
