“Going south of the border was a distinct learning experience, not to mention a lot of fun. I had the opportunity to taste Birria in its own homeland,” said Touma. “I must say, they were all great, but each chef adds their own unique touch. I was inspired to give Birria my own twist here in the states.”
Mike’s Red Tacos debuted at 2335 Morena Boulevard, with a food truck. Revolving around a Birria recipe that was created in collaboration with area chefs, Touma’s menu is built around Birria tacos, made with fresh tortillas from a local vendor, which are dipped in chili oil and crisped up on the flat top for their signature red color.
