(SPOT.ph) If there’s any dining experience we miss, it’s hanging out at our local taco joint and ordering up plates and plates of the said Mexican dish on cool Friday nights. While most of us are cooped up at home for now, you can get your taco fix care of Al Pastor Taqueria, a local purveyor of DIY taco kits you can assemble and enjoy at home.
Each kit comes with tortilla wraps, meats, sauces, and all other condiments you need to assemble hearty, filling tacos. Simply heat your tortilla using a pan or toaster, then layer on the meats, sauces, and other toppings, then squeeze on the lime and take a bite.
A classic choice is the Carnitas (P650/good for six tacos, P1,200/good for 12 tacos, P2,100/good for 24 tacos), which features savory-sweet pulled pork that’s as tender and flavorful as can be. Another porky choice is the Al Pastor (P650/good for six tacos, P1,200/good for 12 tacos, P2,100/good for 24 tacos), a.k.a. pork belly.
For poultry lovers, there’s also the Pollo (P650/good for six tacos, P1,200/good for 12 tacos, P2,100/good for 24 tacos), a.k.a. chicken, which is spiced just right for a slightly smoky, fragrant bite.
A more one-of-a-kind variant Al Pastor carries is the Birria (P700/good for six tacos, P1,300/good for 12 tacos, P2,250/good for 24 tacos), a distinctive kind of beef taco that’s served with a bowl of birria soup. To assemble it, you are to heat the birria soup in a pan or microwave, then dip the tortilla into the soup. It sounds crazy, but it helps moisten the taco and will serve as the “oil” for the next step. You’re then to heat the tortilla wrap in a pan or toaster, then add the cheese, the birria meat (which packs a welcome heat), and the onions. Fold it in half and cook until golden spots appear and the cheese melts, and enjoy!
