Al Pastor at El Taco Veloz
Why We Love It: This north Denver counter joint makes proper al pastor seem effortless, from the mellow radiance of the brick-red chile marinade to the charred edges on the juicy spit-cooked pork. Better still, the corn tortillas are handmade, the pineapple’s fresh and the condiment bar boasts a whole molcajete full of the signature salsa verde with avocado.
Insider Tip: Heads up, nighthawks: El Veloz is open until 3 AM.
