‘Birria Ramen’ Arrives in L.A., Tacos 1986 Pop-Up at Animal Tonight, and Taco Trucks Hope to Ease New Rideshare Anxiety at LAX: The TacoWire

Birra Ramen is here

You will now be faced with having to choose between corn tortillas or chewy ramen noodles to accompany your spiced, stewed beef at L.A. Birria. The prominent birria player just announced that they will now offer their own take of “Birria Ramen” at their newly opened second location at The Green Olive near USC. This is the first time L.A. Taco has heard of the dish first made famous by popular Guadalajara chef Toño de Livier making an appearance in Los Angeles.

Our own @el_tragon_de_los_angeles who first got the spicy scoop confirms that “it satisfies both as ramen, and as birria. It' a perfect mash of Japanese and Mexican broths that belong together like distant soulmates destined to fall in love in L.A." This is probably due to the fact L.A. Birria’s founders used to work at a prominent Japanese restaurant empire before they opted for the birria way of life.

Tacos 1986 at Animal

“Gracias diosito” as commented by Tacos 1986 in their post teasing of a pop-up at Animal restaurant tonight from 8 to 10 PM perfectly captures the sentiment behind the collaboration between two of the biggest hype-worthy establishments in their own fields. For just a couple of hours, you’ll be able to gorge on Tacos 1986 on the Fairfax strip. We suspect long lines, so get there early if you want some of the action.

Taco trucks at LAX

Will a plate of tacos or other food truck fare help ease the frustration and being hangry from having to take a shuttle and the potentially long wait times and surge pricing? LAX hopes so. Eater LA is reporting that there will be two trucks splitting shifts to help ease that deep post-airplane ride hunger. No word yet on what trucks, but L.A. Taco will update as the news develops. The new shuttle service and lot pick-up requirement will take effect on October 29. It could be worse, or can it?
