El Fogoncito
Gringa Taco

El Fogoncito in Mexico City claims to be the birthplace of gringa taco, another version of the taco al pastor which consists of flour tortillas filled with cheese, al pastor meat, and pineapple. This variation features a flour tortilla bearing pork al pastor and queso blanco. As the story goes, in the '70s, two white American women (ergo “gringa”) frequented El Fogoncito and asked for tacos al pastor served that way. Eventually, the option was placed on the official menu, but it’s not necessarily considered a classic Mexico City style like its predecessor.
