4 Montreal Restaurants To Get Delicious Birria Tacos — The Trendiest Taco Of The Year

If you've never heard of birria tacos, you're going to want to change that — they're possibly the hottest taco trend of the year, and you can find them in Montreal right now.

So, what are birria tacos?

Birria is a slow-cooked Mexican meat stew, typically made with goat, but also often made with lamb or beef. Sounds delish right? Well, we've scoped out four local restaurants where you can get your hands on some birria tacos ASAP.

Le Petit Vibe

Price: 💸

Cuisine: Filipino-Hawaiian

Address: 5536A, rue Côte-des-Neiges, Montreal, QC

Why You Should Go: These birria tacos have a Filipino spin — made with Caldereta braised beef, served with cheese and Filipino tomato sauce. Look at that consommé drip!

Tacos Don Rigo

Price: 💸

Cuisine: Mexican

Address: 4740, boul. Saint-Jean, Montreal, QC

Why You Should Go: A new addition to the Pierrefonds food scene, Tacos Don Rigo claims to be "the best" and most "authentic" taqueria in Montreal. Why not find out for yourself?

Mr. Azteca

Price: 💸

Cuisine: Mexican

Address: 7349, rue St-Hubert, Montreal, QC

Why You Should Go: Owner Rosina Martinez told MTL Blog that Azteca's birria is prepared "Guadalajara style," meaning it's made with goat. Ask for quesadilla de birria for the closest thing to birria tacos, but they also serve birria torta, birria ramen, birria burritos and quesabirria (birria and melted cheese in a flour tortilla) so you can pretty much get yourself a birria feast.

La Capital Tacos

Price: 💸

Cuisine: Mexican

Address: 1096, boul. Saint-Laurent, Montreal, QC

Why You Should Go: La Capital Tacos is definitely a must-try spot for Mexican cuisine, however, their birria tacos certainly don't disappoint, and will leave you wanting to come back for more.
