1845 E. First St., Los Angeles, CA 90033, United States

It’s all about the cabra (goat) at this family-owned birriería in East LA, just five minutes from downtown. Established in 1972, the Mexican café does one thing: authentic birria, or slow-cooked goat stew. The simple dishes, sans rice and beans, are served in an equally no-frills setting with bare wooden tables, Mexican tunes, and black and white photos of Jalisco, Mexico. Diners recommend the surtida con consome: juicy, succulent goat meat in a secret-recipe spiced broth, topped with the traditional condiments of freshly chopped onion, cilantro, lime juice, and hot sauce.
