Introducing the Birria Taco: A Mesmerizing Culinary Symphony
Among the many treasures we've uncovered on our Mexican escapades, one dish stood out—an embodiment of Mexico's soul and a testament to its gastronomic brilliance: the Birria taco. Picture this: tender Grassfed sirloin, lovingly dry-rubbed with our signature barbecue spice boasting deep coffee notes. This exquisite creation is then gently smoked to perfection before taking a plunge into a rich chili-tomato broth, where it simmers, absorbing all the flavors that Mexico has to offer. But our culinary tale doesn't end there. Post-braising, the meat finds itself in a sizzling pan, where it crisps up to perfection, ensuring that each bite is a harmonious blend of succulence and crunch, a dance of flavors that will leave you craving for more.
Crafted with Love: A Symphony of Local Ingredients
What makes our Birria taco truly special is the love and care we put into selecting the finest ingredients. Our salsa verde, a vibrant and zesty accompaniment, is crafted entirely from local Hudson Valley treasures—from the tomatillos to the poblanos to the tomatoes. Each bite bursts with the freshness of these locally sourced ingredients, bringing the authentic flavors of Mexico right to your palate. And let's not forget about our tortillas, the sturdy foundation of this culinary masterpiece. Sourced from Vista Hermosa, these tortillas embody authenticity in every bite. Made with high-quality avocado oil and free from fillers, chemicals, and preservatives, they add a delightful crunch to every mouthful, ensuring that you experience local goodness with an international twist and absolute purity in every ingredient.
