Egg Shop husband and wife owners Demetri Makoulis and Sarah Schneider are teaming up with Border Town tortilleria owners Jorge Aguilar and Amanda Rosa for a special one-day pop up on Saturday, October 9th at Egg Shop's Williamsburg location (138 N. 8th Street) from 8:30am - 4pm.
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) in addition to 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 a soft scramble, crispy potato, cilantro, corona and salsa verde ($13). There will also be $8 Micheladas all day.
Hailing from Mexicali, Baja California, Jorge Aguilar grew up on the border of US/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.
