Birrieria Jalisco


Do a simple search on Google Maps for a birrieria in Los Angeles and the markers will sprinkle down over all corners of the page as if you were in Guadalajara. As a former New Yorker who absolutely loved the food during visits to Jalisco, this is one of the highlights of relocation. New York City had exactly zero birrierias, and the places that did attempt the stew always used beef instead of goat.

Moral of the story: any trip to Los Angeles should include a stop at one or more birrierias to sample the goat dish from Jalisco. Some of the best are in South Los Angeles, and this humble Compton Avenue joint would be a good place to start. The beautiful bowl above was deep and full of flavors and spices.

Even better were the tacos de birria (below), which you can ask for with handmade tortillas for a slight upcharge (as with any taco here). This is always worth it, as you already know.

When you enter, look behind you and up as the big menu board is over the door and window at the front.
