    El Morelense

    El Morelense If forced to choose one of the best bites of food in Utah, it would be the al pastor tacos from El Morelense.  The meat is slightly caramelized, topped with pineapple and placed on a soft and fresh corn tortilla. The condiments are complementary, allowing you to put on as much salsa, onion, cilantro and lime as you please. It’s a taco you’ll crave and dream of until your next visit. I promise.
