Whatever Flips Your Goat in Logan Square

Eaterlover | Aug 11, 2007 03:15 PM

I had a Bourdainian moment at Birria Estilo Jalisco in Logan Square (2230 N. Western). The spare decoration (read: drop ceilings and faux-wood boothes) to the non-English menu all spelled delicious. I read about the place in this week's Reader and my main eating partner immediately started salivating when he heard that the place only served goat. I got the consomme which tasted like it had wings and flew directly from Mexico City and a simple big plate of goat. The portions aren't ridiculously huge but come with plenty of tortillas. Goat meat is served as a hunk, steaming in its own juice and the broth surrounding the meat pile is both fragrant and tasty. Granted, meat pile doesn't sound very tasty until you start putting it into your mouth, at which point you will start to wonder why goat isn't the new beef. It's simple, peasant-y and delicious. And, so cheap.
