Tacos Y Birria La Unica is the food truck for those in search of all things birria. With both beef and goat versions on the menu, you can enjoy either stew in a taco, quesataco, mulita, or even just on its own when visiting this Boyle Heights spot. The goat here is delicious, and the cash-only truck’s rich consommé does an excellent job of masking the meat’s natural gaminess. Our order here is the divine trio: goat birria taco, beef birria taco, and goat birria quesataco. When it comes to the quesatacos, La Unica gently fries their homemade tortillas before stuffing them with juicy birria meat and melted cheese. The quesataco’s cheese oozes out from the fried tortilla and has me questioning why we haven’t been stuffing our late-night quesadillas with goat all along. Try a bit of their habanero salsa for an extra kick too.
