Gringos Kitchen Tacos food truck is known for its delicious and authentic Mexican food, and their Birria Tacos did not disappoint during my visit in December 2022. For those who are not familiar, Birria is a traditional Mexican stew traditionally made with beef or goat meat and is typically served with corn tortillas, onions, cilantro, and lime. An absolutely delicious street food, available near Potsdamer Platz in Berlin by Gringos Kitchen.
my Review: Quesadilla Birria Tacos in Berlin by Gringos Kitchen
Gringos Kitchen Tacos offers both meat and vegetarian options for their Birria Tacos. I tried the meat-free version, Quesadillas, and was pleasantly surprised by the vegetarian version. It was made with cheese, pico de Gallo, red onions and cilantro – an easy but so satisfying combination. Besides this, they also offer Tacos with pulled Birria Beef or Vegan Chorizo, and the same topped with extra cheese as Quesa Tacos. They also offer Bowls and Burritos.
One thing that stood out to me about Gringos Tacos was the quality of their ingredients. The tortillas tasted freshly made, and the toppings were all fresh and flavorful. The Birria Tacos can be served with a side of consomé, which is the broth from the stew, for an extra price. This will add an extra layer of flavour to the tacos and make them even more delicious. However, you can also order extra cheese or extra guacamole for your meal. During my visit, I received a free Taqueria Style Salsa with my Quesadillas.
Overall, I highly recommend trying the Birria Tacos from Gringos Kitchen Tacos food truck. Whether you are a meat lover or a vegetarian, you will not be disappointed. The food truck is located near Potsdamer Platz in Berlin and is definitely worth a visit.

more about Birria Tacos – The Latest Trend in Mexican Cuisine
The Birria Tacos originate from the state of Jalisco in Mexico and are made with slow-cooked, tender beef that is seasoned with a blend of spices and chillies. The meat is then shredded and served in a warm tortilla with melted cheese, cilantro, and diced onions. The taco is then dipped in a flavorful broth made from the same meat and spices, which gives it a unique and delicious taste.
What makes Birria Tacos so special is the combination of flavours and textures. The tender beef melted cheese and warm tortilla creates a perfect harmony of taste and texture in your mouth. The broth adds a depth of flavour that is hard to describe but is simply amazing.
