Ever try Tejana Taqueria?
If you haven't, the Riverfront Times is telling you to go there right now. In case you aren't familiar with it, Tejana is a Mexican restaurant located at 3149 North Lindbergh Blvd. For those keeping track, that's just on the outskirts of Maryland Heights' northeastern border.
Specifically, RFT is saying you must try the restaurant's goat soup.
From the RFT:
La Tejana's goat soup is not birria, the fiery stew that is likely the best known Mexican goat dish here in the states. It has only a mild heat. (If you want to spike it, there are dried chiles among the garnishments, and squeeze bottles of the restaurant's red and green salsas are also available.)
The flavor is rich and unmistakably goaty. Even a spoonful of the broth, minus any of the tender meat that swims in it, has quite the punch. I understood why once I asked what cut of goat the kitchen used. Owner Brenda Garcia, translating for one of the cooks, told me La Tejana employs a whole goat in each batch of soup, and the broth soaks up whatever juices drip from the meat.
