n.— «In East Los Angeles, birrierias del chivo, which serve goat, have become as established as hamburger stands in other neighborhoods. A birria is technically a stew or slow roast made of goat, but here tortillas are stuffed with slowly roasted goat, chopped onion, cilantro and a hot red sauce from Jalisco in central Mexico.» —“A Crossover Hit for a Global Star” by Joan Nathan New York Times June 15, 2005.
