Talavera Cocina Mexicana

Posted: Updated:

Forget taco Tuesday, Wednesday is where it's at. We found a spot where you can eat to your heart's con tent or until you burst out of your pants.

Happy Hump day from Talavera Cocina Mexicana.

Marvin Vasquez: "Talavera Coceina Mexicana is an authentic Mexican restaurant. Basically a lot of authentic Mexican recipes, a lot of family recipes."

This Mexican restaurant in Coral Gables wants you to celebrate the middle of the week by stuffing your face.

Marvin Vasquez: "We have tacos al pastor. All you can eat for $10. Tacos al pastor are pork tacos."

$10 that's 40 quarters or 1,000 pennies anyway you pay for it you leave filled.

Marvin Vasquez: "I've seen a guy eat about $10 tacos so he really got his moneys worth."

The tacos al pastor are a classic Mexican recipe. Thinly sliced cuts of pork are marinated layered and stacked in the shape of a trumpo.

Marvin Vasquez: "Trumpo is a top. The top you throw. cause when you loot at it, it literally looks like a top."

The trumpo is placed in a vertically spinning roaster.

Marvin Vasquez: "It starts turning and it slowly stars cooking and cooking and cooking."

And as you order it the chef slices off the pork.

Marvin Vasquez: "The idea is to get the outside very crispy and the inside is very juicy."

The pork is placed in hot corn tortillas topped with grilled pineapple, fresh cilantro and onions and served with fresh green salsa.

Marvin Vasquez: "It's the way they've done it for years in Mexico."

Once you order and eat it you can get more and more, and more, and...

There's only one catch: A one drink minimum. But if you've ever tasted their margaritas that shouldn't be a problem.

Marvin Vasquez: "It starts at 4:00 along with our happy hour and it goes until the tacos al pastor are done until the trumpo runs out. What better day to do tacos al pastor than hump day."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.
