Orale Mexican Kitchen Launches Pop-Up ‘Barrio Burrito’ in Hoboken + Jersey City

Orale Mexican Kitchen announced via a press release to customers that the brand has launched a pop-up eatery called Barrio Burrito.

Barrio Bravio translates to “fierce neighborhood,” according to a rep for the brand.

“For the concept, the owners worked with a very talented Mexican designer named Abraham Lule and based the ideas and designs around Tepito, an area iN Mexico City known for its open-air markets, bright culture, and general lawlessness,” they continued.

“We took this ‘lawlessness’ and applied it to the burrito concept where there are no rules as to what can be done with the food, similarly to how we approach tacos at Orale. The burritos while not cheap are enough to share between two people and measure up at over a foot long packed with ingredients. All our Burritos come with a unique dipping sauce meant for each one,” he continued.

This pop-up is “a new burrito experience”, according to the press release. Patrons can expect an array of seven generously sized burritos, poke bowls, and tasty sides like nachos, Oaxaca cheese sticks, coconut shrimp, curly fries, coconut fries, and more.

The burrito options include fresh takes on classic recipes, like the Vaquero — made of coca-cola bbq braised chicken, chipotle slaw, jalapeño cornbread crumbles, pickled red onions, cheddar, with rice and beans, and house-made coca-cola barbecue sauce.

Another is the Truffle Ribye made of chili-lime marinated black Angus ribeye, arugula, pickled tomatillo salsa, caramelized onion, crema Mexicana,blue cheese, rice & beans, and charred habanero guac with truffle queso dipping sauce.

Barrio Burritos is available for takeout orders or direct ‘unattended’ delivery at your doorstep within a 20-block radius of Hoboken and Jersey City locations. If you’re further out, UberEats is available for delivery. The hours of operation are Tuesday – Sunday 3PM to 8:30PM for the pop-up.

To-go cocktails are also available and options include Frozen To-Go, Nuestra Casa To-Go, Sangria Red To-Go, and more.

As far as the future? “Barrio Bravo is currently only being offered for takeout and delivery as we wanted to be able to provide our guests with more options as restrictions on our industry become greater and greater during this continued state of emergency. We are in active conversations to place this fun concept in a location or two within the Hoboken/JC borders very soon,” the rep shared.
