There are birria trucks, and then there is Tacos y Birria La Unica. Yasmany and Jaime Mendoza are at the helm of the Boyle Heights truck, and since their launch in 2017, they’ve landed themselves on practically every “Best of” list, and despite LA’s indomitable taco truck scene, La Unica has fully made their mark as one of LA’s best trucks.
Though they’re serving up tacos dorados (think taquitos), quesadillas, mulitas, and vampiros, you’re here for the goat and beef birria, served on handmade corn tortillas, and glistening with that beautiful red color as deep as the paint on their truck. Don’t make the mistake of forgetting some extra consome on the side for dipping — in fact, don’t make the mistake of forgetting to hire them to cater your next event, either.
