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:

Asiadog:

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.

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.

Lonestar Empire:

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.
