Birria at “El Hoyo”

We had birria yesterday at my favorite spot in Aguascalientes called Birreria El Maguey.  We never remember the name and just call it “El Hoyo” meaning “the hole” in Spanish.  Because, up until recently the place was just the that, a hole in the wall.

 The place is like a building in ruins with old photos and some ranch paraphernalia.  From the outside, the place does not get your attention at all but it has, in my opinion, one of the best plates of birria available in Aguascalientes.  I always ask for a plate with mixed meat (dark and light) with “machito”.  Although people would tell you otherwise, machito is not male genitalia :P.  It is fatty meat that has been stuffed into intestine, similar to a sausage, that is served along with the birria.  To top off the dish, it is covered with a red sauce and onions.  Other condiments usually available are oregano (or cilantro), lime, chili serranos… all served with fresh corn tortillas.  

I give the birria at Birreria El Maguey a 5 out 5.
