tacos is copied from greek gyros(kebob) by middle easterners

Al pastor

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carving the "trompo" of pastor meat
Al pastor (from Spanishlit. In the style of the shepherd), also known as tacos al pastor, is a dish developed in Central Mexicoshawarma spit-grilled meat brought by the Lebanese immigrants to Mexico.[1] Being derived from shawarma, it is also similar to the Turkish döner kebab and the Greek gyros. Although shawarma and döner are usually lamb-based (thus the "shepherd-style" name), gyros and tacos al pastor in Mexico are pork based. In some places of northern Mexico, as in Baja California, this taco is called Taco de Adobada.

Pork is marinated in a combination of dried chiliesspices and pineapple. In some places, achiote is also added, and then slowly cooked with a gas flame on a vertical rotisserie called a trompo (lit: spinning top), very similar to how shawarma is cooked, with a piece of fresh onion and a pineapple on top.[2] When ready, the meat is then thinly sliced off the spit with a large knife. It is served on small tortillas, with finely chopped onionscoriander, and occasionally, a small slice of pineapple, and usually topped with some lemon or lime juice and hot salsa. This meat is a common ingredient in not just tacos, but also gringasalambreshuarachestortas and pizza.


In some places of Northern Mexico, such as Nuevo LeónDurango and Chihuahua, these are usually called tacos de trompo if served on maizeflour tortillas, and gringas if they are served with cheese on wheat flour tortillas.
A similar dish is called tacos árabes, which originated in Puebla in the 1930s from Arab Mexican cuisine. Tacos árabes use shawarma-style meat carved from a spit, but are served in a pita-style bread called pan árabe. These tacos have been brought by Mexican immigrants to the United States in the past few years and have become popular in cities, such as Chicago and Los Angeles, two of the largest Mexican/Mexican-American population centers in the United States.[3]
A non-pork version was brought "back" to the Middle East in the early 2000s, and sold as "shawarma mexici". It is essentially a chicken shawarma made in the Middle Eastern style (wrapped with garlic mayonnaise, dill pickle and french fries in a thin flatbread), with the only difference being the marination of the chicken in the "al pastor" style.
