Our familia believes in the power of food, and how it brings people together. Time and time again, we gather around the table in celebration of food, family, and togetherness. For this Cinco de Mayo (and happily every day thereafter), we wish to bring flavorful, celebratory foods to your table. Here’s what’s on our menu this weekend!
Inspired by Middle Eastern influence in Mexico City, Tacos al Pastor are traditionally made with slow-cooked, and thinly-shaved, shawarma-style pork. Our easy-to-make version, on the other hand, uses mushrooms in place of meat. It’s seared in achiote garnished with lime juice and grilled pineapple—bring this dish to any party, and you’ll be sure to go down as the funnest “fungi” (fungal?).
