“Best birria pork tacos around!”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 April 2018

This was one of the stops on the Vallarta Eats Food Tour, which turned out to be my favorite.

The make-shift restaurant was situated in a courtyard fronting a building. You don't come here for the ambiance, just authentic tacos. A take away stand greets you with a flat top just behind that where the tortillas were being grilled. Our group of eight squeezed together on a few tables and a mishmash of chairs where sauces and toppings were laid out.

Guava Juice
I've never seen white guava juice, just the pink stuff we have in Hawaii. Despite the color difference, the taste was the same.

Birria Pork Tacos
Because we were on tour, we had the chance to sample the delicious birria (stew broth) that their pork is cooked in. The fiery red liquid was full of deep, savory flavors. We had a soft shell and crunchy taco with the same fillings with pork and cheese. Both were amazingly tasty but the crunchy version won me over.

If you're adventurous, they also served a taco filled with chopped up organs that consisted of intestines, hearts and liver. One was brought out but I happily declined, LOL.

Obviously good as locals were constantly lining up for takeout. We ran out of eating time so we'll hit them up again in 2019.
