It was time to revisit one of my favorite new restaurants from 2020. Chuyitos Birreria at 1415 W. Pawnee St. caught my eye with one of their recent menu additions: birria ramen. Let’s check it out.

I knew I was going to order the new dish but when I arrived, I was given complimentary bean dip, consomé and chips to start. I loved the consomé. It was a bit spicier than others around town and incredibly delicious.
I’ve had the goat birria from Chuyitos before so I knew I would enjoy this version of the dish that had ramen noodles added to it.
Tortillas and all the fixings were supplied which could be used to make tacos if you wish.
The ramen came in a similar dish called platillo de birria. There were chunks of goat swimming in a type of salsa; all meat and no bones. Then ramen noodles hid underneath but were easily found with the spoon.
The meat was very lean and tender with the salsa adding a spicy, rich flavor. Once I found the noodles in the bowl, it turned an A+ meal to An A+++ meal. Ramen noodles and birria made complete sense together. It came off well and tasted great.
I think some people started to get burnt out on all the Birria around town but Chuyitos was one of the original places to do it in town with their sister restaurant, Birreria Raymundo. The combination of Birria and ramen makes so much sense and compliments each other so well. This dish was $8 which was a great deal. I left completely satisfied and happy.
Here’s their menu:
