I stopped by Taco Factory in the Claremont Village on the way to class today. You know what? I’ve been looking forever for a place in this city with Al Pastor. I keep on reading about Kirk’s adventures with this succulent meat and was growing quite frustrated with the fact that I could not access such places without a car. Who would have guess the Taco Factory, a mere 15 minute walk from my dorm, offers this treasure?!

So I had a Al Pastor Taco ($1.29), and here it is. Kirk was right! I like, I like it very much! I have no previous experience to compare this with, but the shreds/chunks of pork were so moist and flavorful with just the right about of spice. Slightly taken aback by all the offerings at the pile-it-on-yourself salsa bar, I just loaded up whatever and anything that looked good. It worked out very nicely, I must say! Only issue I had here was eating this with my hands. There was so much stuff everything threatened to spill out. I had to do it fork and knife – it was the only way.

The Mahi Mahi Taco ($2.49) was ehhh, just okay. I would have much preferred two more Al Pastors’ to the Mahi Mahi for the price. A fair sized fillet was sautéed and layered over the corn tortillas with a tangy cream sauce and cabbage. The fish was tough and overwhelmingly ‘fishy’ in flavor, even with the cream sauce…Hawaii spoiled me, but I can’t be too picky here. All in all, it was a simple, yet enjoyable lunch…nice to get some time alone for myself. Besides, now I can say I’ve had Al Pastor, finally!!!

Teasing the Cocoa Notes Out of Tea

June 18, 2019 0 Comments

For me, leafing through a recently-released compendium of teas with many first-flush single-origin varieties is akin to salivating over those luscious photos of vegetables in a seed-seller’s catalogue: Each entry promising something new, summoning a hopeful if guarded belief in Nature and the growing conditions of my garden. What will the … Continue reading
