Foursquare Tips

  • Dont miss the Guadalajara-style birria: roasted kid hacked into chunks and served in a strong consomm that tastes like amplified pan drippings.
  • Order a bowl of the intensely savory birria, especially if you're a goat lover. This Jalisco stew is revered as a hangover cure:
  • El Parian's birria may be the single best regional Mexican dish in Los Angeles.
  • Pozole!!!!
  • Roy Choi, chef of A-Frame, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Birria.
  • Featured on LA Weekly's 99 Essential Restaurants!
  • One of my favorite taco spots in LA. Sit down & have a beer with two huge tacos.
  • Tacos de birria
  • Birria is good but service is slow.
  • El Parian serves other dishes, but the birria is what I come for. Tender, rich chunks of stewed goat meat in a consomm, eaten with corn tortillas, onion and cilantro. Heaven! CASH ONLY!
  • Carne asada never disappoints
  • Carne asada!!
  • 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.
  • Everyone is raving about the birria (goat meat) so I tried some. It's so ridiculously gamey that it's nasty. I guess some ppl like it that way.
  • The birria is turkey superb. Get the meat on the side as the pieces can be big and really need shredding before tossing into the broth. Also I've found I get nicer pieces of meat this way.
  • Authentico!!!
