Tuétano Taqueria Slow-cooked meat in an adobo sauce with dried chiles, spices, cinnamon, garlic, and onions for 36 hours. Our birria is braised and simmered in a signature sauce for an additional 12 hours. “It’s slow-cooked, braised, and shredded. Then they put it in a tortilla. With the marrow, totally delicious.” – San Diego Reader

“Curiel has been perfecting her Michelin-honored birria for eight years, starting with catering and pop-ups before opening in San Ysidro in 2018. The stewed beef shoulder, seasoned with cinnamon, cloves, and guajillo chiles, is the focal point of a concise menu that includes quesadillas, tortas, and her most celebrated dish, a birria taco topped with roasted bone marrow. There’s also beer from Mujeres Brew House and Border X Brewing and wine from Escondido’s Speckle Rock Vineyards, with cocktails to come.” – San Diego Eater
