Essential Al Pastor Info!
Our handmade 'Al Pastor' shawarma style seitan is infused with ancho, arbol & guajillo chillis, then coasted in our secret adobo marinade. Thinly sliced and cooked, it's accompanied by hand made corn tortillas, caramelised pineapple, salsa verde, onion & coriander - true to its original form in Mexico City. These are some next level tacos!
If you're new to Al Pastor, he's basically the king of street food in Mexico City :) On every street corner, you will find a street food trader shaving thin strips of bright red marinated Al Pastor from a spinning trompo (spit). It's an awesome mix of cultures and flavours- the shawarma style of cooking was brought to Mexico by Lebanese migrants, and the Mexicans introduced their punchy chillies and flavours and a true classic, Al Pastor, was born. We don't know who decided to put a pineapple on the top of the spit, let it caramelise and the juice run down the Al Pastor, but whoever did was a bloody genius and we thank them every day!
We've spend over a year working on this fabulous vegan version, so we hope you enjoy it!
Only available at our Soho restaurant & (now) in your home!
