Can you get Birria in New York?

J Ruchala Jul 30, 2000 10:20 PM

The "what's my craving" left me hanging, so I'm trying my question here:

Does anyone know of a place in the New York area that serves the Latin-American goat dish called birria?

Thanks for any leads.

    They have it in taco form at Tacos Nuevo Mexico in Brooklyn, 274 Fifth Avenue, around 11th Street.

      Bumping this in case the birria scene has improved in the past decade.

        Tia Julia at Roosevelt and 68th has had it recently. Look for the sign stating "birria de chivo" in the window.

          I was there last night and they didn't have it. Perhaps it is only available on weekends.?.?.?.

          It's my favorite taco filling at Coatzingo along with the tongue.

            I believe at TC it is beef, not goat. I think the menu actually says "birria de res".

              it does, I wasn't aware of the distinction. Is it the same sauce as goat birria would have? I really love that flavor.

            Is there an actual birreria around here?

              Casa Vieja (5th Ave between 60th and 59th) has birria in stew, not taco, form.
