Birria tacos are dippy, drippy, crispy, glorious creations. And if they’re done well, you’ll never stop thinking about this delicious delight…take it from us.

These morsels, also called Quesabirria tacos, are traditionally made from juicy, tender, and flavourful shredded beef or goat meat stew and lots of melted cheese.

Birria tacos are served with consommé for dipping, and cheese skirts are definitely a thing when it comes to this variety of handheld.

If you’re looking to try ’em all, or even try this offering for the first time, here’s where to find the best birria tacos in and around Vancouver.
