  1. Off the top of my head I can't think of one that specializes in goat in that neighborhood.

    If your up to a 15 minute drive hit up El Parian just West of the convention center.

    1. Just in case you don't already know this, birrieria is typically a goat restaurant, small ones are all over town.

        I was going to say the same thing. They are everywhere in Van Nuys. You may want to try Birreria Mexico on Vanowen near Van Nuys Blvd.....fresh tortillas goat and lamb.

      2. Having been introduced to goat at a Mexican joint in Nashville, of all places, I was surprised at how few we found when we moved out here, and how many served a "birria" made with beef. They had that at the Nashville place, too, but it was clearly for people not up for trying goat. Mrs. O was still carnivorous then and fell for it hard, though she was equally drawn to their luscious menudo.

        Not Glendale but damn close, My Taco on Mission in Highland Park has a birria, but I think it's lamb. But it's good, and cheap. East from Figueroa a few blocks, on the right. Order at counter, all disposable tableware except the eating utensils, no alcohol. I like it anyway, though it has the dreamy ambience of a shabby urban bus station.

        1. There are actually quite a few.

          I would start at Antojitos Guerrero, on York Blvd. (x-street 56 ave.)

          Keep driving down York and you'll bump into quite a few Mexican joints with birria, incl. Taco Riendo.

            Yes. Good call. One of the places on York that does birria is El Huarache. The whole stretch is a veritable Mexican food wonderland.

          2. In my experience, if you're going to the sort of party/picnic where people are willing to get their fingers messy, and you show up with some of the goat drumsticks from Birreria Jalisco, your popularity at said party goes up roughly 32.7%...
