Birria consommé, with chunks of meat and an inexplicable, deep restorative power is chugged by the cup. Lamb birria tacos - so rich, so soft, and just a little cheesy - taste like they’ve been slow cooked to D’Angelo, and the migas con chorizo homemade chorizo, scrambled eggs, cheese crisp, salsa) or migas con potatos (with crispy potatoes instead of chorizo) are there for those who need their weekend egg fix.
