Tacos usually come in twos.
And if a taco place is good enough, it ends up with a partner too. Hence the fact that El Pastor is spawning a sibling; Tortilleria El Pastor.
The tortilleria – or ‘tortilla factory’ – will make fresh tortillas from scratch every day, ready to be turned into tacos including the namesake Al Pastor, with 24 hour marinated pork shoulder, caramelized pineapple and guacamole taquero; and the Mushroom taco with caramelised onion and melted Oaxaca cheese.
The team will also be offering Sopes for the first time, thick corn mini maize cakes piled high with toppings. For something sweet, there will be Mezcal, burnt honey and grapefruit cake; chocolate pots; and El Pastor favourite, the EP Bounty Bar.
NOTE: Tortilleria El Pastor is due to open in late March. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can check out their current place El Pastor.
