The shepherd’s tacosthat have their origin in the heritage of the Middle East that settled in the state of Puebla, were created in the 1920s from a Mexican adaptation to a Middle Eastern dish, and in the XXI century they continue to evolve after the creation in Germany of a robot specialized in the preparation of this dish.
The origin of tacos al pastor dates back to the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th when the Ottoman Empire fell, which caused thousands of people, mainly from Syria and Lebanon, to leave their places of origin and many of them arrived in Mexico. and many of these people settled in Puebla, where they began to share their culinary culture.
It was also in the 1920s when Lebanese immigrants in our country began to recreate the famous shawarma, a dish originally from Israel that was adopted by the Arabs, substituting lamb for pork, marinated with spices, which resulted in the taco al pastor
It is unknown when they began to be prepared as we know them today, however some agree that it was not until the 1960s when the children of these Lebanese migrants gave this traditional dish a Mexican touch and began to become popular.
Now the creation of a robot called The devicemanufactured by the German company Aldakur RobotSystems, which automated the process of slicing the top of any type of meat, with the aim that kitchen staff are not exposed to heat and avoid accidents.
According to the German company, this robot promises a work much easier and cleaner.
“The device gives you the sliced meat at the touch of a button. The kebab robot has smart sensors that are optically integrated and ensure easy operation. In this way, you will get the kebab meat piece by piece in the desired measure in each case,” the company said.
Through social networks, this robot has surprised many users, due to the peculiar way in which this device slices meat, so some users pointed out that this could be the future of tacos al pastor in Mexico.
In a video shared by Christian Van Der H, he shows the robot that he captured in a German store where the netizen expressed “I just saw the future of tacos de pastor”.
