The food scene in Los Angeles is incredibly diverse and is the home to a whole assortment of incredibly well established and popular restaurants. Despite the strong competition, tacos have become an integral staple to the food scene in Los Angeles. From carnitas to seafood, there have been taco trucks that specialize in every single type of taco. Out of all of these specialties, one immensely popular taco variation is the birria taco.

Birria tacos are native to the Mexican state of Jalisco and consist of either goat meat or beef that has been stewed. The meat in birria tacos are almost always braised for upwards of twenty four hours in a stew of chiles and an assortment of spices. Birria tacos are extremely rich and served with a side of the stew, or consommé, that the meat is cooked in. Another characteristic of birria tacos is that the taco tortillas are dipped in the consommé before being cooked on the griddle. Here are three places to find birria tacos in Los Angeles.
