Julia: Smorgasburg – an outdoor food fair at the Brooklyn Bridge Park, where you choose between BBQ, Asian, Latin-American or have it all-together in a fusion snack. The ethnic mix of the food landscape is as diverse as the inhabitants of NYC – so whatever I ate – Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican – it always has been good and I rarely found that quality (and price) in Austria.
Waz: I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with Smorgasburg. It’s the most popular food market in NYC, and the crowds will test even the most patient person. On top of that, with all the meat heavy and dairy-full options at the market, it’s not exactly a happy vegan land. It’s gotten more vegan friendly over time though! Lots of Smorg vendors now have a vegan/vegetarian option on the menu.
Sanne: I had been looking forward to all the delicious food at Smorgasburg, but on my way, I stumbled upon Samurai Mama, which is an excellent Udon restaurant in Williamsburg and had a big bowl of udon. I know I shouldn’t but I just couldn’t resist. Udon noodles is solid stuff, and after having circulated the marketplace 3 times without the slightest craving for anything, I gave up and went down to the shoreline to take some pictures instead.
