Smorgasburg: weird name worth knowing. It is the perfect place to indulge, with lots of vendors selling various kinds of food that would make any food lover drool. The last time my nephew came for a visit, we went to the location in Williamsburg. This time, we went to Park Slope to show my cousin Sandrine Brooklyn and one of its flea markets. I admit that, while the ladies were interested with the market itself, I was more interested in the food...Not surprising I guess.
What I like about this place is the multitude of food stalls that offer different kinds of cuisine: BBQ, Mexican, Asian...
Here is what we ate:
For a taste of hotdogs with an Asian twist. Jodi ordered a veggie dog with The Sidney topping that is Thai mango relish with cucumber, red onion and cilantro (she asked without peanuts):
This was pretty good and I could barely taste the fact that it was a vegetarian wiener! I loved the sweet and salty flavor and the mango and cucumber had a nice freshness.
Rice and Miso Everyday:
We ordered the basic rice ball with black sesame:
It was served with nori (seaweed). I liked it: it was not dry, simple, with the sesame adding a nice nutty taste.
This one served a smoked angus brisket sandwich that was amazing: the meat was literally melting in my mouth. This was probably the best brisket sandwich I ever had!
The angus beef is rubbed with salt and pepper and is smoked slowly for up to 16 hours over mesquite wood coming from Texas.
There, I got a pulled pork sandwich that was a bit dry:
Milk Truck Grilled Cheese:
We tried their grilled cheese with mushroom: simply delicious!
And a vanilla milkshake that was too milky.
Jodi ordered a veggie taco with guacamole that was pretty nice and very refreshing.
The Good Batch Ice Cream Sandwich:
Yes, we still had some space for ice cream...Jodi got the Goodwich that was oat chocolate chunk cookie, sea salt, fudge and vanilla ice cream.
Sandrine and I got the vanilla nutella that was a butter cookie, vanilla ice cream, nutella chocolate ganache and toasted hazelnut.
This was fantastic! A bit too sweet after a while, but a great way to end our delicious meal at Smorgasburg. If you love food, Smorgasburg is definitely a destination to know.
Enjoy (I sure did)!
