Even if you haven’t ventured out much this past year to eat, you’re probably aware that you can find birria tacos all over town right now. But when the market is as saturated as it is, it can be challenging to figure out which spots to prioritize. Let us point you to Birrieria Esquivel. We tried this new shop in South Gate recently, and loved the salty, spicy balance of their beef birria that they put into almost every dish on the menu. The cheesy, crunchy tacos dorados are the obvious stars, but definitely make sure to order a few mulitas as well. These flat, gooey tacos aren’t the easiest things to eat while sitting in your car, but if you’re by yourself, who cares? Also, the deeply smokey consomé that comes on the side is among the best versions we’ve ever had - we dunked our tacos into it a few times, but then just ended up drinking straight from the cup.
