Chofi Birria is Bringing Birria Tacos to Union City

Kim Martin-Flammia and Patrick Flammia run popular birria taco (red taco) Smorgasburg (popular Brooklyn food market) vendor Chofi Birria and are expanding with a brick an mortar location in Union City later this year.

Birria tacos have quite buzzy this past year in particular, starting with LA and then NYC, as the Tijuana-based style has been all over social media and the NYC food press.

Chofi’s tacos are brushed with birria (a beef-based consomé) as they are grilled, giving then their red hue — Chofi says they are using the “hangover soup of Jalisco”. The tacos are filled with beef and then served served with more birria for dipping. Bowls of just birria are also sold as well.


The Flammias are aiming to open the shop sometime in March.
