LA Weekly's Description

Until a local website praised its carne asada, El Parian was best known for its birria, Guadalajara-style roasted goat in broth, and when you sat down at one of the well-battered tables, the waitress didn't offer you a menu, she asked whether you were having a full order or were only hungry enough for a half. El Parian's birria may be the single best regional Mexican dish in Los Angeles. But those carne asada tacos have been pulling a crowd of people less interested in goat than in the sweet, meaty, garlicky charbroiled steak. And the taco people may be right - the meat is well blackened and peppered with delicious pockets of liquified fat. Will I order the carne asada taco the next time around? Of course not. But it's good to know it's there.

    Don’t miss the Guadalajara-style birria: roasted kid hacked into chunks and served in a strong consommé that tastes like amplified pan drippings.

    Enjoy Jalisco-style roasted goat that's been served here for nearly five decades. Chef Garcia offers a crusty-but-juicy birria with vinegary habanero sauce.

    Order a bowl of the intensely savory birria, especially if you're a goat lover. This Jalisco stew is revered as a hangover cure:
