If you’re looking for great tacos al pastor ($1.70), you’re looking for a taqueria featuring a magnificent trompo, aka a spinning pyramid of pork slathered in rusty achiote paste. If you don’t see a trompo, the kitchen is likely just marinating their pork and cooking it straight on the griddle, which often results in a mushy steamed mess. The meat never has the chance to crisp up or char from a constant flame like it does here.
