Though I live in Kansas, I work in Missouri and spend most of my time eating my way through the great Kansas City lunch spots.
However, every once in a while, I’m able to border hop during my lunch hour and chow down on some legit Mexican food just across the state line.
I used to make regular trips to El Camino Real with my former coworker when I officed a bit closer to the Kansas-Missouri border. We’d hit up a simple little spot in downtown KCK that made my mouth water every time we walked in and took a seat.
El Camino Real, located on North 7th Street just past Armstrong, is a tiny little taco shack that boasts big flavors. When you walk in, you’re greeted with the smell of fresh corn tortillas and the sight of a huge slab of pastor-style pork and pineapple.
While I have tried an assortment of tacos from El Camino Real, I always come back for the pastor-style tacos. They’re always seasoned to perfection, and if you’re lucky, you get some generous bits of pineapple in your taco — talk about sweet and tart meets spice!
These tacos have inspired me to begin pinning some great taco seasoning recipes to recreate pastor-style tacos at home.
But that won’t keep me from my next visit to El Camino Real. Who wants to come with?
