Sunday morning, one train, an incredible view, and a feast of flavors. Smorgasburg has been around for several years now, since 2011, when it started as a spin- off of Brooklyn Flea, the popular flea market founded in 2008.
A classic in the summer weekend in New York, I couldn’t miss this paradise of food for nothing in the world. The delight is complete with an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline, the East River and both Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
Around the world in a single stroll.
Mexican, Ethiopian, Malayan, Indian, Thai and more. Many nations congregated by the love for unforgettable flavors. The many stands that can be found mix up their aromas in the most delightful way.
My second choice was the tacos made by Oaxaca taqueria. Ceviche and carnitas were the chosen flavors, and I was not disappointed. They were quite spicy, though. When something is warned as mild here, it means it’s hot for an Argentina. And when it’s marked as hot, it burns like hell itself. Luckily, I love spicy foods so without knowing, I was in for a treat.
Tina, instead, went for a classic. Fried shrimp and fried fish! It was served with the most creamy tartar sauce that I ended up stealing for my tacos. Ok, I love the spicy kick but I also enjoy a great balance with a creamy sauce.
And after the feast, we took a stroll on the pier, and all around the promenade. It was incredible.
Peekaboo! Empire State edition.
