El Al is part of the Taco Team - dedicated to analyzing the Al Pastor taco.
A disturbing ongoing issue with the consistant availability of Al Pastor at the
Mi Pueblo store had breifly stablized. There was a certain chef who had been doing great. But the store has changed names and the spit is a disaster. The taco team gave up.
Now each member is forced to do home experiments to further their knowledge.
After a trip to Mexico City El Al learned some things:
- Cilantro is not a thing in Mexico City
- Pork shoulder Al Pastor is a yuppy extravagance - any fool can make awesome Al Pastor with pork sholder but try tenderloin... much harder.
- High heat from the trompo is mui importante especially for feeding a line of people - En Serio!
