Hash Bar at Smorgasburg (June 2012)


At this massive grub hub, there’s only one rule: Come hungry. The Brooklyn Flea spin-off draws more than 10,000 visitors per day with a slew of 75 to 100 incredible food vendors. Our pro tip? Make sure you peruse the lineup before you go—those mouthwatering scents and the bevy of choices can make you dizzy (and the dense crowds can make you hangry). Highlights include Vietnamese food from Bep, Goa Taco’s avant-garde fare as well as incredible sandwiches from newbies Heros and Villians  and Red Table Catering. Go on, give into gluttony. (We won’t judge.)

LOVED it here. The Lumpia Shack Mushroom Filipino Spring Rolls were my favorite!

Smorgasburg has become a staple for foodies in NYC - and rightfully so! With the endless options of different types of food, it's impossible to stumble upon the same thing twice. And it's impossible to go hungry there! One of the most famous foods is the ramen burger, which is delicious, but worth splitting with someone so you have room to try other foods. The view at Smorgasburg on Saturdays in Williamsburg is amazing (I have yet to go to the one on Sundays), so if you're not there for the food, go for the view!

Now that the warm weather is back in NYC, I cannot wait to go back to Smorgasburg on a weekly basis.  You'll get past the seemingly difficult to pronounce name as soon as you try one of the many delicious dishes.  You could go every day it's open and still not try everything, but personal favorites include vietnamese tacos from Goa Taco, spring rolls from Lumpia Shack, and the lady who sells GIANT mangos on a stick with paprika. You'll become obsessed (and full) very quickly.

Smorgasburg is in my neighborhood, so I love to wander over here on a Saturday (early, because these crowds get unruly). My advice: take a trip to see all the vendors before you decide on any one thing! Don't get anything huge, instead get three small things. And definitely make one of those things a dessert! The ice cream sandwiches from Goodwich are a REVELATION. My new favorite vebdor this year is Heros & Villains sandwiches—get the Black Sabich. You can also grab a beer in the beer corral, or settle around the park and people watch with a beautiful view of the skyline.
