A while ago, Mr. M&P and I headed to Smorgasburg for the first time. Yes, first time. Not sure why we waited this long. Oh wait, it involves a weekend trip to Williamsburg. That's why. Anyway, we found a free spring Saturday and headed out to Brooklyn on a sunny afternoon. We aimed to get there around 11:30am about a half hour after opening. There were plenty of people around already but the place was still functional. By the time we left around 1pm, it was swamped and lines were long. Yeah, my first advice to you is to go at 11am. The vendors will already be set up.
The first thing we tried were the pigs in a blanket from Brooklyn Piggies. These little nuggets of mini hot dogs wrapped in flaky buttery dough was delicious. The accompanying mustard gave it a good kick. Tasty indeed! But 5 nuggets for $8 was quite pricey. This was the kind of pricing we found pretty much everywhere at Smorgasburg.
Brooklyn Oyster Party. Don't be shy. These were very fresh and delicious. Shucked to order. Briny, clean, sweet, salty, supple, creamy, delicious.
Milk Truck was pretty long but we were craving a grilled cheese sandwich. Yes, I know there's an actual food truck that roams the city but I haven't been able to get to it yet.
Scharf & Zoyer to visit our friends working the booth, both ChiefHDB and Feisty Foodie.
el gato nacho. Made to order nachos.
By now, we were full from all the food we ate but there was still some room for dessert from The Good Batch. Ice cream sandwiches were on the menu.
