King David Tacos
The company that brought Austin-style breakfast tacos to NYC in a big way is opening its first brick-and-mortar spot on May 11. Previously only available via their park taco carts or at coffee shops like Hungry Ghost and Blank Street, KDT is leasing a large warehouse space mostly for the kitchen to continue their cart, wholesale, and catering ventures. But when Austin-born-and-bred founder Liz Solomon Dwyer saw its large patio space, she knew she had to carve out a small retail shop. KDT has a lineup of five breakfast tacos, all served with sides of red and green salsa and wrapped in five-inch Fiesta flour tortillas trucked in from Austin including the BPEC (applewood smoked bacon, potato, egg, and cheese), Queen Bean (homemade refried beans, potato, egg, and cheese), and No. 5 (KDT’s vegetarian chili non-carne, refried beans, and potato). The new location will also have Stumptown coffee, horchata, and horchata mixed with coffee, plus several non-breakfast items.
The dish: BPEC (bacon, potato, egg, and cheese) breakfast taco
Nearest polling place: Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway
If you’re up bright and early in hopes of cutting down your wait time, don’t forget to hit up King David Tacos first. This Austin-born breakfast taco cart has two locations in NYC, with one conveniently parked steps away from the Brooklyn Museum in Grand Army Plaza. Go for the BPEC which takes a New York classic bacon egg, and cheese, adds potato for long-lasting breakfast fuel, and gives it a Tex-Mex spin.
