Birria with Barry

Sunday morning and we hit the road to Cihuatlán to find what Barry Vincent says is the best Birria restaurant on the coast. Birria is a spicy stew, traditionally made from goat meat which has been cooked in clay pots that have been sealed in a wood fired oven. 

Our trek took us to La Birria de las 12 located about six blocks up the hill from the main street in Cihuatlán (Map here). On this outing, Barry brought a good friend Gabriel, who is a contractor in Melaque and the four of us enjoyed a wonderful meal together.

One of the reasons Barry wanted to take us to this restaurant was that Linda had never tried Birria before.  Being her first experience we wanted it to be a good one and the stew here did not disappoint! We were served Birria with freshly made tortillas, queso fresco, refried beans, and all the fixings.
Birria ovens, one open, one still cooking.
