They are SO. DAMN. DELICIOUS.
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
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
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?
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
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.
