My best friend, Dani, is, hands down, the pickiest eater I know. She has no qualms about sniffing her restaurant order when it arrives at the table, “just to make sure.” Thus, when she told me about some outrageously delicious tacos, she’d come across, from a new taco truck I had to give them a try.

Parked on first street in Hillsboro, Oregon (Next to the KFC), sits the bright red OG Birrieria Taco Truck . Adjacent to the truck is a makeshift wooden shelter, complete with tables, chairs, and a tall cylindrical space heater.

When I say, “tacos,” you shouldn't be thinking about hamburger and refried beans in a bright yellow shell. OG Birrieria begins by marinating beef in a spiced consomm√© overnight. The meat is then stuffed into a corn tortilla along with a helping of Cotija cheese. The taco is then dipped into the consomm√© and fried to order on an electric griddle.

This isn’t fast food, but it only took, roughly, ten minutes for my number to be called once I’d ordered. For $12.00 I received a box with; four tacos, some lime wedges, a mixture of cilantro & onion, a small cup of orange hot sauce paste, a small cup of guacamole, and a generous disposable ramekin of the consomm√© to serve an au jus of sorts; which is the reason I nicknamed it, “the French dip of the taco world.”

The hot sauce paste was over the top hot, and I wasn't in a guacamole mood. However, I added the; lime juice, onions, and cilantro; to balance the rich meat and cheese with some freshness. Dipping the tacos, before taking each bite, delivered a gamut of salty, spicy, and herbaceous flavors all working together to produce a superb eating experience.

I have nothing bad to say about OG Birrieria’s tacos. 10 out of 10 stars.
