There are so many different types of tacos; everyone makes them their own with toppings and sauces. We’ve put together a little guide on the best tacos based on what they’re made of.

Taco de Pastor

Made with split-meat pork, cooked vertically on a top. Typically seasoned with adobada marinade. We recommend the cheese crust.

Taco de Birria

Slowly stewed in a pot, the meat is made so tender. Served with onion, cilantro, and a dash of lime. Don’t forget to dip it in your consome! Some places have quesabirria if you’re looking for a cheesy option.
