Just about everything at Los Del Pastor is fantastic. This food-truck-and-tent operation is open every day right on Atlantic Avenue in front of the park, complete with a pastor trompo. They have mulitas, tortas, burritos, and more things we could happily eat every day for the rest of our life. But we keep coming back for the al pastor tacos. They’re simple in the best way possible: a warm corn tortilla, some raw diced white onions, a little chopped cilantro, and several layers of crispy marinated pork. Cut into chunks the size of snack-size Kit-Kats, the al pastor here is notably crispier than other versions we’ve had. And you can blanket each taco in salsa verde, pickled jalapenos, or whatever else catches your eye at the self-serve toppings table.
