Meet the Birria Taco King of Brooklyn | Hungry For More

In the premiere episode of our new First We Feast mini-doc series Hungry for More, we visit Nene's Taqueria in Brooklyn, NY - serving up braised beef birria tacos in cheese-crusted homemade tortillas. After leaving Michelin star restaurant Jean-Georges as a cook, Andrés Galindo put everything on the line to open his own taqueria on the same block he grew up on in Bushwick. With his mom by his side, Nene's Taqueria has been drawing fans to Brooklyn - including NBA veteran JJ Redick, who calls Andrés' tacos "life changing."

Hungry For More
In our brand new First We Feast documentary series, Hungry for More, we will chronicle the redemptive stories of chefs, home cooks, and entrepreneurs who represent the new vanguard of the food world—hustlers who have carved out their own special lanes and rebelled against the status quo - all while bringing comfort to their communities and beyond. From the Birria MVP of Brooklyn, to the Bronx native trying to take chopped cheese nationwide, and the home cooks turned restaurateurs bringing plant based cuisine to their block in Flatbush - these stories are testaments to how comfort and success sometimes come from the unlikeliest of places.
