Very exciting when a taqueria has cochinita pibil on the menu. This roasted pork shoulder or loin is marinated with annatto seed (for color), sour Seville oranges, garlic, and other spices and then traditionally wrapped in banana leaves and roasted. It is de. licious.
Cochinita pibil is more of a Yucetan or Mayan dish, so it rarely makes an appearance at taquerias. One of my favorite restaurants, Poc Chuc has a great version.
