Don't let the restaurant's name and long sections of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai dishes on the menu throw you off: Come here are for the best al pastor tacos in Chicago. Yes, you read that right. As soon as you walk into the small casual spot in Little Village you’ll see the staff expertly carving a massive trompo of pork rotating around a live fire. The paper-thin slices of al pastor have the perfect balance of crispy exterior and buttery fat—all complemented by fresh green onion and sweet grilled pineapple. And though it's not officially on the menu, ask for some al pastor fried rice.
