Spoon Up Spicy Goat Soup at La Polar

La Polar

There are three floors at this old-school restaurant from the 1930s, where there is only one thing on the menu: birria, a spicy goat soup garnished with chopped white onion and lime. You can get the birria submerged in broth or have the meat with broth on the side; either way, first order a big beer on tap and a side of avocado. When the birria arrives, wrap some supple meat in an aromatic tortilla, dunk it into the flavorful broth and while away the afternoon and your hangover. On busy evenings, there are at least two mariachi bands playing simultaneously.
