Instagram is ripe for images of cheese pulls, making birria tacos, especially its sister quesabirria tacos, the darling of the moment on social media. This Mexican stew starts with marinated beef or goat that then simmers in broth for hours to acquire its tender meat. Birrierias dot Jalisco and its capital, Guadalajara, but birria can be found throughout Mexican cuisine. In Las Vegas, look for smaller Mexican restaurants that specialize in the dish. Order tacos dorados for a crispy version of birria de chivo (goat) or birria de res (beef), and dunk it in the consomé served on the side, or try birria in ramen, burritos, or even on its own in bowl.
A number of Las Vegas restaurants have resumed dine-in service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in Las Vegas, please visit Nevada Health Response. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
