What Makes Up The Taco:

Corn tortilla, pork, cilantro and onion.

Why You Should Try It:

What deviates Al Pastor from traditional pork tacos is how the meat is prepared. Al Pastor is spit-grilled pork, cooked similarly to lamb shawarma, which offers a more dynamic flavor profile. Some taco makers will also include pineapple in their Tacos Al Pastor to provide a more elevated flavor.

Acapulco

Acapulco

What Kind Of Taco:

Colorado Taco

What Makes Up The Taco:

Flour tortilla, seasoned beef, shredded cheese, lettuce and tomato.

Why You Should Try It:

In traditional Mexican cooking, cheese and lettuce are not placed on a taco. However, as tacos became a trendier food in the United States, taco lovers opted to ‘Americanize’ the taco. This is done by adding cheese and lettuce, making it a Colorado Taco. Perfect for someone who may prefer a more American take on the classic. Luckily, Acapulco offers both for patrons.
