Get the Al Pastor

Two weeks later at Zia Taqueria I contemplate the menu for a while before remembering our conversation. “Get the al pastor,” Szlam had recommended. “Get it with the flour tortillas — sour cream and guacamole only.”

And he’s right. A dish I usually treat with rustic complements, girding a corn tortilla with piquant red sauces and sharp raw onion takes on a luscious, and quite subtle, expression of Zia’s al pastor, the sharp, almost citrusy tang of the shaved pork allowed to take a larger role.
