This was one of our stops on the Vallarta Eats Food Tour.
This is a taco stand that serves up pork cooked in lard. Yikes, I could feel my arteries shiver! The set up reminded me of a Chinese butcher shop with the splatter barriers that blocks debris of food from flying everywhere from the manic chopping of the meat and fat. A spread of condiments were available.
Lard Pork Tacos
I can attest that the pork did have an extra richness from being cooked in lard. The mix also included chopped up pieces of fat. And not the soft kind but the rubbery variety which I ended up spitting out. I’m not a fan of soft corn tortillas and diced up fat, so I gave up after one bite.
To each his/her own but I’m not a fan.
