Birria de Chivo

Has anyone found goat birria in the City of San Diego? Kare_Risu I think I recall you saying you found it in North County, can you refresh my memory as to where.
Also, is the birria place on El Cajon doing birria de cordero (lamb) still in business.
TIA the DD
I have had it at Super Cocina and Los Panchos in Pacific Beach (Weekends Only). Birria on the menu not in the steam table. Los Panchos does a good job, I've only seen it on the weekends. If you have not visited the PB Los Panchos it is a diamond amongst coal under the Los Panchos banner. Besides the biriea, they also do a nice Queso Fundido, Chile Verde, and the cocktails are good.
I, like stevuchan, have had it it at Super Cocina and it is excellent. The indoor market on Imperial Ave has it - I am almost postively sure (Kirk posted on this place and I did a Chowhound post a while back).
Down Imperial is an actual Birreria.
As far as the Lamb restaurant, El Borrego - I havent been there in a long time but they continue to advertise in the Mexican weekly I get. In light of this, I think they are still in business. I like this restaurant as much as Super Cocina. The service and people who run it are wonderful and I love the cosy feel and glorious food. I regret not having been back in a while.
In the North County, it was the Tortilleria Los Reyes that has it on the weekends along with barbacoa de borrego estilo pachuca (wrapped in maguey leaves) and revelatory carnitas.
I have also had it at El Tigre which has a branch near the border, along with Escondido and Fallbrook (weekend only).
Its pretty common in Escondido as well - let me know if your interested in this locale.
Hope this helps! Don't forget the lime, cebolla, cilantro, and chile arbol!
I'm in the search for some good goat Birria. Does Tortilleria Los Reyes still do it on the weekends? It looks like El Tigre is closed now near the border. Does the Escodido location have it still? Certainly looking for any updates since 2006! Anywhere in SDcounty is just fine.
"Super Bronco" (I believe) on Linda Vista road, about halfway between USD and Vien Dong. South side of road. It's on the menu all the time. Their carrots - 50 cents for a big bag - are outstanding as well. The place is so good I pull over and get something there just because I see a parking place available.
The Birreria on Imperial Ave, Just E of the 5 fwy and past the Farmers market is called "La Nortenita." I want to check it out.
