Breakfast Tacos are now officially a thing in NYC. What a beautiful world we live in! When we meet other Texans in Brooklyn, the first topic of conversation is always and without fail about where to find breakfast tacos (the second topic of conversation is usually about queso). There was a tiny handful of places throughout the city offering solid breakfast taco options we’d pilgrimage to, but finally that number is growing. This Tex-Mex phenomenon is becoming a real NYC trend and we couldn’t be happier.
People ask us all the time why breakfast tacos are so good and how are they different from breakfast burritos. There are so many reasons why, but really it boils down to the fact that because the tortilla is smaller, there’s basically the same amount of all the different components making up your taco making the whole thing more flavorful (and often fresher tasting, if you get avocado, pico de gallo, or other veggies) than a burrito, which has a lot more tortilla and egg than most other things. It’s the Texas version of a bagel with egg, bacon, and cheese (though usually less of a gut bomb), and we’re so excited to see it’s roots take hold in the city. See where you can get your breakfast taco fix on our map!
