Former Peached Tortilla chef Ryan Rosen is branching off on his own with a breakfast sandwich food truck, Brooklyn Breakfast Shop. It’ll be found at the Yard on 440 East St Elmo Road starting on Monday, August 26.
Brooklyn Breakfast Shop will offer a menu of three breakfast sandwiches, a hash, and pastries. House-made bun options will include buttermilk biscuits, naan buns, and a vegan/gluten-free buckwheat English muffin.
Potential dishes include a maitake mushroom hash, pickled Fresno peppers, cilantro lime yogurt; berbere-spiced beef sausage with wilted bitter greens, cilantro lime yogurt, and fried egg; and a sweet potato and spring onion hash with a fried egg.
Its initial menu that opening week will feature a buttermilk biscuit with honey-cured bacon, mustard pickles, a fried egg, and slathered with pimento cheese; Yukon hash with charred onions, shishito kosho, and pickled Fresno chile peppers; and a buckwheat English muffin with smoked oyster mushrooms and wilted bitter greens, with optional pickled okra.
Rosen thought that, as a growing city, Austin needed corner stores with to-go breakfast sandwiches that are already omnipresent in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York.
In Austin, Rosen spent a year at The Peached Tortilla catering (he said founder Eric Silverstein has been “very supportive” of his endeavors). Back in New York, Rosen was executive sous chef at One World Observatory, and worked in the Condé Nast kitchen and executive dining room.
