Birriería las Nueve Esquinas information
The village-like Nueve Esquinas (Nine Corners) neighborhood specializes in birria, meat stewed in its own juices until it’s so tender it melts in your mouth. Birriería las Nueve Esquinas, a delightful semi-open-air restaurant covered in blue and white tiles, is renowned far and wide for being the king of birria .
The two main offerings here are birria de chivo (steamed goat) and barbacoa de borrego (baked lamb), although ask the staff and they won’t hesitate to tell you that the chivo is the best of the two. Both come with a stack of fresh tortillas, pickled onions, cilantro and two salsas – wrap the meat in the tortilla, add various flavors and then dip the tortilla in the meat juice before putting it in your mouth. Heavenly.
