Taco de Barbacoa

The preparation process of taco de barbacoa is long and laborious but the result exceeds your expectations. Meat, normally lamb but can also be beef or goat, is wrapped in a banana leaf and steamed in an underground oven. That’s why it has that unrepeatable texture – it literally melts in your mouth! The meat is served in a taco with herbs, onions, and with a plate of broth.

Tacos de Carne Asada

These tacos are among the most popular ones. They are made from marinated meat that is grilled over charcoal. The meat is served on a tortilla.

Tacos al Pastor

Tacos al pastor are made from marinated pork. The meat is grilled on a vertical rotisserie, anchored on top and bottom with a piece of pineapple. Taqueros cut the meat off the spit into a warm tortilla and put some onions and cilantro on top of it.

They are among the easiest to prepare. That’s why you can easily find them everywhere.
