Tacos al Pastor
If you want a dish that dates back to ancient history, give these tacos a whirl. Although the 1920s and 30s don’t seem to be too far back in history, tacos have come a long way since back then. These tacos mean in the style of the shepherd and are served with thin, but delicious, strips of pork. They are then placed on a traditional corn tortilla that was hand-made and served alongside coriander leaves, pineapple and onions.
Ahhh, one of our favorites. Tostadas are a staple at every Mexican food restaurant. Why? Because they’re delicious and savory! Tostadas literally means toasted. So, what do you get when you order a tostada? You’ll receive a tortilla that has been freshly fried to a crunchy golden-brown served alongside a number of garnishes that is sure to make your mouth water. Popular toppings include cheese, cooked meat, frijoles, seafood and/or ceviche.
