The clip shows the sensation that a stall has caused in a city in Germany.

This video was published by the journalist Yaotzin Botello on Twitter where it shows the commotion caused by a taco stall located in one of the streets of the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood in Berlin, Germany.

In the short clip, the journalist showed that a stall has the top with the meat in view to prepare the tacos, on the other hand, there is a man who attends to the diners and takes their order. On a table are the sauces, lemons and all the ingredients that a taco al pastor should have.

El Puesto, the ad hoc taqueria run by ex-employees of the doomed modern-Mexican venture La Lucha and operated out of the same Paul-Lincke-Ufer space, serving Berlin something its never had before: Birria.

When I left LA, the version of birria I knew was a goat stew associated with the state of Jalisco. Now, thanks in no small part to Instagram, it’s been eclipsed by Tijuana-style birria de res, fatty braised beef piled into corn tortillas and served with a cup of consommé (the chilli-infused braising liquid, brick-red and very photogenic) for dipping. 

This is El Puesto’s specialty, and it’s awesome: tender as hell, greasy in a good way, liberally sprinkled with coriander and chopped onion, as spicy as you want it to be thanks to a side of thick, ruddy arbol salsa. The use of Japanese dashi and miso turns the broth into a veritable umami cyclone – I’m not embarrassed to say I chugged it straight-up after dipping and eating the trio of tacos it came with. After low-key opening in mid-March, it seems the stand’s secret is now out, so you might have to queue a bit for your Easter weekend birria fix. It’ll be worth it.

Speaking of which, what of Taqueria El Oso, the extremely hyped al pastor taco specialists poised to set up shop at Prenzlauer Berg’s soon-to-come Markthalle Pfefferberg? Readers, I fucking tried. But their preview pop-up, held Wednesday night at Boxi bar Protokoll, attracted the longest queue in Friedrichshain this side of pre-corona Berghain, and this hangry food critic couldn’t hack it. It did look promising, though: a döner-like spinning cone of layered pork topped with pineapple, sliced and served on corn tortillas or as gringas (basically, pastor quesadillas) along with a choice of seven(!) salsas.
