Move over, Doritos Locos: The Mexican-food masterminds at El Rey have created an even crazier combination. Behold the “five-pork taco,” a handheld treat from chef Wylie Ballinger made entirely of swine.

Woven bacon replaces the masa-based shell, which is stuffed with pork loin, shredded carnitas, and pineapple-marinated pork al pastor. The fifth element: a generous smear of pork-fat mayo.

Those hoping to try the porkful creation can stop by the U Street Mexican beer garden during its Cinco de Mayo celebration on Monday, May 5. The dish will be served for $5 alongside an appropriate abundance of margaritas. BYO heartburn remedy.
