Tacos al pastor in New Rochelle, Little Mexican Cafe

I just came back and it's the real deal--chili rubbed pork, strung onto an upright rotisserie (v. similar to the rig they use at Lefteris Gyro)and capped with a pineapple slice. At the bottom is an onion, but I can't see that it adds flavor unless they collect the drippings. The whole assembly is spit roasted in a contraption with flame panels, like an upright infra-red broiler. The meat is sliced off the spit, caramelized briefly on the grill (just like lefteris) and then served in a gently toasted soft corn taco--$2. It's my new favorite thing at Little Mexican Cafe--it's tender, delicious, divinely peppery.
