I was so excited when I heard Smorgasburg was back for the season.
Smorgasburg is one of my favorite places to go to explore on the weekends in Brooklyn.
It is a food flea market with a plethora of delicious places to choose from.
It’s like a foodies’ paradise and as a plus has a pretty great view of the city.
Our first stop (first of many) was Asia Dog.
Asia dogs are hot dogs with Asian inspired toppings.
Everything on their list looked good and I was left with a hard decision.
I then asked the woman behind the hotdog which she recommended.
She recommended the ITO and said it was a bit spicy but awesome.
They already had my eyes and mouth-watering with their hotdogs on display so I paid her and waited patiently for my hotdog.
The ITO came and I took a large first bite.
It definitely had a kick to it but it was really good.
At a food flea market you can’t just go and try one food (unless you’re crazy or something) so my friend and I decided to split each of our foods so we could fit in even more places to try.
Next pit stop was Sunday Gravy.
Sunday Gravy has a special meat sauce with a slow braise of succulent beef and pork, sausage and meatballs, simmered with plum tomatoes, garlic and basil (and a few other special secret ingredients.)
Now, I’m Italian and a bit of a snob when it comes to a tomato sauce, but I’d have to say this one gets a thumbs up on my list.
I’ve tried Bite Size Kitchen in my previous frequents of Smorgasburg so I’ve come to know this little gem.
I recommended Jon try the pork which comes with the freshest of ingredients in a soft bun.
The braised pork belly comes with cucumber, scallions, hoisin, and pickled jalapeños.
It puts a smile on your face after the first bite.
Next, I HAD to go over and try the smokey bacon cheese.
I mean IT HAS BACON.
This weekend was beautiful for walking around Smorgasburg.
Great for burning a few calories in between your next mouth full of food.
We went a bit later (around 4:30) and Smorgasburg closes at 6 so unfortunately a few stands started to pack up.
I missed getting myself some Ramen noodles but I did find Noodle Lane which made me equally happy.
I tried the Dan Dan noodles with medium spice.
They were light and fresh with a bit of a kick to them.
I smothered them in the sauce at the bottom and took a large bite.
YUM. That’s what I have to say.
It was Jon’s turn to pick and he decided on Takumi Taco.
I’m in love with sushi so I seconded his decision and we headed over.
He ordered the spicy tuna taco with sashimi grade big eye tuna, jicama, avocado, cucumber, spicy mayo, and crispy gyoza shell.
I’d say the best choice on the menu.
Just look at all that goodness in a shell.
After walking around a bit more and rubbing my full belly (while patting the top of my head) we decided we forgot about dessert and headed over to Alchemy Creamery.
They were all out of their magical push pops of ice cream and cake (which I will be back for since they looked MAGICAL).
Instead we ordered the caramel ice cream with salted walnuts and oh golly gee were they good.
It was a very successful day at Smorgasburg.
I highly recommend hopping over whether by train, car or wings to try some of the delicious foods they have to offer.
