The weekend is finally here. If you’re like me and you’re wondering what to do this weekend I’m here to share an exciting event.
Tomorrow Oct. 9th from 8:30 AM to 4 PM Egg Shop NYC + Border Town BK will be hosting a breakfast pop-up of tacos and burritos for a good cause.
Husband and wife Demetri Makoulis and Sarah Schneider, owners of Egg Shop NYC @eggshopnyc will team up with Jorge Aguilar and Amanda Rosa. The owners of Border Town @bordertownbk tortilleria for a special one-day pop-up at Egg Shop’s Williamsburg.
A special menu highlighting Border Town’s Sonoran-style handmade flour tortillas using flour shipped in from Mexico will be served up with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Border Kindness.
The non-profit provides shelter, food, transportation, and other critical services/resources to families and individuals seeking asylum and reunification with children.
The special menu will include Chorizo con Papas y Huevo Tacos on handmade Border Town flour tortillas ($14 for two). A Brisket Chilaquiles Burrito with scrambled egg, fried tortillas in salsa roja, jack cheese, crema, cotija, pickled onion, cilantro, and jalapeño on a handmade flour tortilla ($15) and Veggie tacos with eggs, potato, cilantro, cotija, and salsa verde ($13) in addition to $8 Micheladas all day.
Hailing from Mexicali, Baja California, Jorge Aguilar grew up on the border of the US and Mexico. The idea for Border Town sprung from a nostalgic desire to recreate the tortillas he was raised on and share them with his new community in Brooklyn. Using pork lard from the local butchery, The Meat Hook, Aguilar and Rosa offer fresh tortilla deliveries to Williamsburg and Greenpoint residents. Egg Shop is excited to have Jorge on-site making his signature flour tortillas on October 9th.
