Tacos Al Pastor are a popular street food.

Al Pastor is Spanish for Shepherd Style.

The main ingredients are: marinated, spit-grilled pork or goat served with onion, roasted pineapple and cilantro.

The origins of this dish come from the Lamb Shawarma tradition brought to Mexico by Lebanese immigrants.

Often the marinating spice mix is a combination of Middle Eastern and Mexican flavors.

Pineapple are grown all over Mexico and finding a wine to go with it is a challenge.

The best match is a sparkling brut rosé with red berry flavors or a white wine with tropical notes.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
