Spit-roasted Al Pastor tacos?

adamclyde | Apr 9, 2004 12:04 PM

A current thread on the LA board got me craving great al pastor tacos, carved off a spit...

Does this exist anywhere in Manhattan? Or even anywhere in the tristate area?

I know Eric Eto recently talked up a place in Queens (Taqueria 3 Caminos, I believe). But all other mentions of the topic looks like they are 2+ years old. And none refer to either Manhattan or any burbs.

Does anyone have any good recs on where to get this? I have never seen it anywhere in Manhattan, either on the far West side of Hells kitchen, or in East Harlem. And when I've gone to Sunset Park, I've never seen it either... I guess that leaves Roosevelt Ave, which I need to spend more time in...

I'm almost positive it isn't anywhere to be had outside of the 5 boroughs (I've scoured Westchester/Fairfield cos looking for it and haven't heard/read of anything in Jersey or LI).

Anyhow, any rec on where to get good spit-roasted al pastor in the Tri-state area is greatly appreciated.

*as a side note... does any know why this is so hard to find in this area? It's not like it is really difficult to acheive - you see it all the time on taco trucks or taquerias or even on taco carts...
