Best Tacos Al Pastor in University City


Trey Popp gives us two reviews in one yesterday as he reviews the bricks and mortar Don Memo Restaurant in Upper Darby and the Tacos Don Memo cart in University City. What Popp raves about is the tacos al pastor coming from the cart at 38th and Sansom.

A double-tortilla wrap cradles a griddle-fried dice of spicy pork in which every single morsel seems edged with the perfect crisp. There’s a bit of pineapple, a tuft of cilantro, a thorough douse of chipotle salsa as earthy as kiln dust. By the time you squeeze your eighth of a lime on top, the doubled tortilla has become a structural necessity: barely enough insurance against sloppy disintegration that you can still revel in its threat.
