Taquizas Gilberto

$$$$
Written by
Perfect For: Literally Everyone Lunch

Taquizas Gilberto is a weekend-only West Covina pop-up that serves Hidalgo-style birria and barbacoa, and the taqueros here are masters at cooking meat low and slow until it’s super tender. Barbacoa lovers can try the dish’s traditional lamb preparation, as well as goat birria that’s equally succulent. Taquizas Gilberto has plenty to sample, but one dish that stands out on their menu are the tacos dinamitas. These are actually more like flautas, and consist of generous portions of meat rolled up in a large corn tortilla before being deep fried. The birria taco dinamita can be compared to a larger, crispier, and much tastier version of the taquito, but this comparison really doesn’t do them justice. The meat makes up the majority of each bite and effortlessly pulls apart as you sink your teeth into its crunchy tortilla shell, which you should definitely dip into some chile guajillo salsa.
