Del Taco Debuts New Birria Ramen and More

Del Taco Birria Ramen.
Del Taco welcomes new Shredded Beef Birria to the menu and is serving it with ramen--a first for a major fast food chain. Del Taco is claiming the offering makes them the "largest restaurant chain in the country to serve ramen."

Del Taco's Shredded Beef Birria features shredded beef seasoned with "traditional spices and chile peppers" and braised for 2 and 1/2 hours. According to Del Taco, it took them over four months and 16 revisions to develop the recipe.

The Shredded Beef Birria Ramen features beef broth consomé with fresh wavy ramen noodles, and shredded beef birria, topped with diced onions and chopped cilantro, and served with a lime wedge. It carries a suggested price of $5.79. The new ramen is joined on Del Taco's Shredded Beef Birria menu by two other dishes:

- Two Shredded Beef Birria Tacos for $8.59 - Each taco features shredded beef birria with diced onions and chopped cilantro, served on two fresh-grilled corn tortillas with a layer of melted cheddar cheese between them. The tacos come with two lime wedges and consomé for dipping on the side.

- Shredded Beef Birria Quesadilla for $6.79 - Shredded beef birria, house-grated cheddar cheese, and tangy green sauce folded into a flour tortilla and and then grilled. It comes with a side of consomé for dipping.

All three birria menu items are available for a limited time now at Del Taco restaurants nationwide.

Birria is a Mexican dish of meat soup. Recently, it has found growing popularity served in tacos (sometimes grilled with cheese and occasionally called "quesatacos") with consomé (the soup broth) for dipping. The dish has caught on at a few major fast food chains. El Pollo Loco has offered their take on it as a limited-time offering and Taco Bell put out their limited-time version of the dish as "Grilled Cheese Dipping Tacos."
