Time Out says

Teddy’s Red may have made birria popular citywide, but this cash-only taco truck in Boyle Heights and Mid-City showcases a cleaner-tasting, less greasy side of the ubiquitous stew originally from the Mexican state of Jalisco. Available in both goat and beef varieties, taquero Yasmany Mendoza serves fall-off-the-bone tender birria tacos with a rich, salty consommé. While both are delicious, we prefer the mildly funky-tasting goat, which perfectly complements the vinegary adobo sauce. For even more flavor, order the deep-fried quesatacos, which come with melted soft white cheese. Beyond birria, Tacos Y Birria La Unica also serves a few cuts of tender beef offal: cabeza (head), lengua (tongue) and hard-to-find labio (lips).
