smorgasburg in brooklyn

crowd a handful of artisanal food vendors into an acre of grass on the brooklyn waterfront and you have yourself a smorgasburg. the choices are almost overwhelming but i figure a decent rookie strategy is to choose the vendor with the longest line. we had a few favorites to hit up and then you notice what everyone else is shoving in their mouths and decide you want that too.

the selection of vegetarian eats gets two thumbs. i went for an asia dog covered in ketchup, jalapeƱo mustard, and crushed potato chips.

ed passed up the bite size pork buns for a chicken burger and lemonade.

mimi and coco's teriyaki balls are fried in a special cast iron grill that leaves the outside crispy and inside still gooey.

onward to dessert! the cookie sandwiches are hard to pass up, but i'd make the hour-long train ride on a regular basis just for the s'mores. the marshmallows are gooey and melted and when the wind blows just right... stuck in your hair.

Looks amazing! They have something similar here in Boston called the SoWa Open Market but I almost have to take a Xanax just to go to it. It is a hot-mess of mile-long lines and porta-potties and food trucks!

But for those s'mores, I'd brave it.

I was there this weekend! My boyfriend and I were wandering around and had to keep reminding ourselves that we could come back another day to try more things. We spent the afternoon in a doughnut coma.

I can't wait to go back again this year! I really enjoyed the DUMBO location they had last fall. The s'mores are always my favorite! The graham crackers are so delicious. Looks like you guys had a great time!

Mm those smores look amazing. And who doesn't love some marshmallow in their hair?

I love smorgasburg! I made sure I didn't miss it the last time I went to visit New York. The s'mores were delicious! I'll be sure to check out the asia dogs next time.

Oh my goodness, I'm drooling! Thank goodness I've got tasty lunch plans or my taste buds would be sorely disappointed!

That looks amazing, especially those s'mores! Just love your sunnies, too.

Nutella with smores. My goodness... that looks amazing.

I love these kind of events but I'm always crazy at the beginning trying to be strategic about what to eat so that I can get a flavour for as much as possible. (hmm, that sandwich has too big of a bun, that's a filler right there!)
