Watch the Masters at El Faralito Make One of Mexico City's Best Al Pastor Tacos

Brace for serious onion chopping.

Unsure of what to eat for dinner tonight? After watching this stunning video, the the answer will most definitely be tacos. Set to dark jazzy music, it's all about the tacos al pastor at Mexico City's "cult eatery" El Farolito. The video provides a close-up look at the process of making what Swallow magazine founder James Casey dubs the cheeseburgers of the city. There are close-up shots of ingredients, cooks rapidly chopping onions into what looks like a giant trash bin, and stacks upon stacks of tortillas. Go, watch — and then do yourself a favor and order some tacos.
