From left, Delgado’s head chef David, Jesui, Lalo and Francisco prepare the “trompo” for tacos. 

Delgado’s Mexican Restaurant’s sister location Pepe’s in Goleta recently experienced a fire and had to close temporarily. To make the best of the situation, some of the staff from Pepe’s visited Delgado’s to show the Carpinteria team how to work the “trompo” or spinning top used to make the Mexican delicacy, al pastor. The restaurant now offers tacos al pastor on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Customers can ask for “the original taco” which comes with al pastor, cilantro and onions or “the dirty Lalo” which is a crispy grilled cheese tortilla filled with al pastor, cilantro and onions.
