Washington, DC – On the heels of launching their new District Heights location, Chef Damian Brown and The Uncaged Chefs announce a new #TacoTuesday pop-up; Trap Tacos. Chef Damian is known for his decadent soul food twists on classic dishes and doesn’t hesitate to add a little nostalgia when the mood hits. Dishes like Captain Crunch French Toast with Cereal Milk Icing draw crowds that even a pandemic can’t stop.
Starting June 2, 2020, The Uncaged Chefs will venture outside of their normal menu every Tuesday and offer an array of Uncaged style tacos. True to form, these tacos will not be your abuela’s. Expect Birria style tacos featuring flavors such as a crab mac and cheese taco with a Cajun cream dipping sauce. Also, a fried chicken taco with kale tossed in a cilantro with a jalapeno aioli, jerk chicken tacos and more. The direction of the tacos each Tuesday really depends on Chef Damian’s inspiration and at any given moment. The Birria style tacos featured on the menu for kick-off, are nod to Uncaged Neighbor at Savor Food Hall, Little Miner Tacos. “When I get inspired, I can’t stop myself,’ exclaims Chef Damian regarding his inspiration from Chef McKenzie Little Miner Taco at Savor Food Hall. Chef Damian looks forward to pulling inspiration from a variety of sources to keep Trap Tacos fresh from week to week but promises to keep favorites around.
Trap Tacos will happen every Tuesday at The Uncaged Chefs location at 6027 Marlborough Pike in District Heights, Maryland from 11:00 am – 8:00 pm. Trap Tacos will go 2 for $8 and available for pick-up only.
