Birrieria Nochistlan Restaurant Review

: Oven-roasted goat birria in the style of Nochistlan, Michoacan, is the focus of this Boyle Heights eatery. Don’t even bother to look at a menu. Tender goat is available dry or submerged in broth, and on the bone or boneless. Regardless, roast goat arrives juicy, with crusty coats. Try the tacos with goat meat, on steaming corn tortillas with minced onion and cilantro, a squeeze of lime and spicy fire-red salsa made with Yahualica chiles. Each plate comes with chile-studded, protein-rich goat consommé that has flavor that builds in intensity with each bite. To drink, expect soda and Mexican lagers like Corona and Negra Modelo, which help to extinguish the spice. If you’re seeking dessert, consider a nearby panaderia. Note: The former Flor del Rio was renamed Birrieria Nochistlan and moved across the street to this address.
