Birrieria Zaragoza

If you are looking for something different when it comes to Mexican food then this is the place.  Expertly roasted goat shank is celebrated every day here.
It's all about the goat here!!  Birrieria Zaragoza goes through approximately 22 young goats in a weekend, seasoning the meat with kosher salt before gently cooking it in a sealed steamer on a stovetop for five-six hours. Unlike most birrieros, they make their consommé, which is tomato-based, without drippings from the meat. It's a method John learned by videotaping Segura's wife, and it results in a clean broth without the fat. After steaming, an ancho-based mole is applied to the meat and then transferred in to an oven to roast, resulting in a wonderfully tasty oven-roasted birria. The birria is accompanied with hand made corn tortillas, which are made on a wood tortilla press. The tortillas are an exquisite vehicle for the goat, lightly drizzled with the consommé and garnished with chile de arbol Picante, onions, cilantro and lime and roasted arbol peppers.
