for lunch today: tripe or tongue near Meat Hook in Brooklyn?

Going to a 2PM class at the Meat Hook and want to get lunch before. My two favorite foods are tripe or tongue -- soup, sandwiches, tacos, whatever. Is there anything nearby -- for example, a taqueria -- that would be open today and have these?

    Brooklyn Star has tripe chili, but not for brunch I don't think. Maybe if you're hungry after. Not the best neighborhood for these cuts, unfortunately.

        There's an Ecuadorian diner on the other side of Meeker from the Meat Hook, but they have erratic business hours. I think it's on Leonard and Meeker.

        ...Tacos Morelos is lousy.

          Tacos Morelos on Bedford. Mesa Coyoacan is closer but I think only has the lengua tacos at dinner.
