Torrance’s Tacos El Goloso is a beef birria spot that’s reliable for two things: generously stuffed tacos and extra crispy fried tortillas. Their tacos dorados glisten after being slathered in consommé, yet manage never to come out too oily. I’m also always impressed by their fried tortillas’ semi-soft centers that can hold all of the birria without breaking apart, which is what makes El Goloso’s tacos dorados some of the most dunkable in the city. Would I recommend dunking your tacos in a moving vehicle or mid-walk? Probably not, but that’s because I have trust issues with crunchy tortillas. However, these tasty birria tacos are genuinely bursting with meat and happily absorb all of the juices from the spicy broth. Their birria taco dorado combo is a great deal at $8.50 and a quick fix for anyone looking for last-minute tacos for dinner.
