Selecta International? Actually, if you've been reading long enough, you'll recognize this as Internacional 2000 - the window in the market's parking lot. Different name; but that Al Pastor sure looks the same.
For some reason, both the Missus and I were craving some Al Pastor......so we drove all the way down to Chula Vista.......
It's now $1.29, but still a bargain in my book. Order at the window......you pay, they tell the guy, he asks you "con todo"? And we answer "si"! He slices of bits, makes sure they get a nice mix in the fat....adds some crunchy bits, onions, etc.....slathered with guacamole..... Same guy doing the Al Pastor as well.
Nicely caramelized, not quite as sweet as it used to be, in the past the version here reminded us of char siu. Still, quite satisfying.
Love the charred bits.
Good to know the Al Pastor here is still pretty good in spite of the market's apparent change in ownership. So I guess we'll keep dropping every so often when we need our Al Pastor fix.
