La Santa Torta specializes in birria, made according to a recipe from one of the owner’s Jaliscan grandmother. Beef is marinated for 24 hours with spices that are hand carried from Mexico, then slowly cooked until tender then shredded. Corn tortillas are stuffed with the shredded beef, red onions, a sprinkle of cilantro and melted Oaxacan cheese. Griddled until crisp they are served with lime and salsa but add a cup of broth for dipping for the ultimate birria taco experience.
