In case you hadn't noticed yet (my partner Mharie certainly has), I have become obsessed with the latest and possibly greatest ever food trend, birria tacos (or quesa birria as it is sometimes called). It first came to my attention in an article in The Daily Hive and more recently, in a March 2, 2021 article at Vancouver is Awesome, by Lindsay William-Ross entitled, "What is a birria taco and where can I get them in Vancouver?" I suggest that you read that article for the explanation and some history while I devote myself to sniffing out all the birria tacos that Metro Vancouver has to offer! So far we have tried them at Don Osso in Burnaby (which also serves birria ramen) and Little Mexico Cantina in Steveston. You can read about those places on this blog and check out our pics on Instagram. Our recent visit to Tacofina Taco Bar in Gastown also served to widen our birria taco horizons.
I was a little annoyed that there is no way to speak to someone on the phone at the Taco Bar. All you are able to do is listen to a recording and leave a message (which was never answered). Mharie and I have travelled to too many places for something specific only to find they were out of it or they are closed or they don't live there anymore. I like some assurances but we took our chances and were not disappointed this time.
