The tacos, which are made of tortillas, are dipped into the stew and then consumed. The tacos are also filled with meat and vegetables, all of which contribute to the burst of flavour within this dish. One of the other well-known items on their menu is the Birria ramen, which is exactly as it sounds: ramen noodles dunked in their beef stew. The beef used in all the dishes is also halal.
