Chef Mike Minor is whipping up a mean birria (goat stew/soup) these days at Border Grill:
The word ELV is getting is Chef Mike is getting whole goat carcasses, breaking them down himself, before putting all that kosher goodness into a rich and deeply spicy stew. It’s damn good goat…and a steal at $12/bowl.
Unfortunately, we can’t recommend the paella:
…as we found it gummy and starchy and not worthy of the generally fine cuisine put out by this Mandalay Bay Mexican.
Fortunately, all was salvaged by the tres leches cake:
…that was as milky and rich as this cake can get.
Our bill for two was $55 – including a $10 tip – with no booze).
Just thought you’d like to know.
