Their signature tacos are just like their name, Tacos Patron. In Spanish this means like shepherd style. This is style of a dish was originated in Central Mexico. Lebanese immigrants originally introduced this process to Mexico. One can find similar dishes by the Greeks gyros and the Turish doner kebab. In Baja California, this flavorful pork taco is called taco de adobada.
For its preparation, the pork is marinated in a combination of dried chilies, spices and pineapple, and then slowly cooked with a gas flame on a vertical rotisserie called a trompo (lit: spinning top), with a piece of fresh onion and a pineapple on top. Once this careful work of art is completed, the meat is then thinly sliced off the spit with a large knife. This is very similar to the way the one sees the Greek serve you a Gyro. The latin version serves the prepared meat on small corn tortillas, with finely chopped onions & cilantro, and a small slice of pineapple.
Tacos Patron has made this Latina very happy!
