Today we headed for Brooklyn in anticipation of all the cuisines Smorgasburg had in store for us.
First up we had Lonestar Empire’s Slow Smoked Texas Style Brisket Sandwich.
Their signature dish did not disappoint. We’re all about their tender, marinated brisket that’s sandwiched between two slices of soft yellow brioche-like bread. Not a big fan of their Texas style mustard potato salad though.
Next we had Home Frite’s Truffle Fries.
Fried to a crisp, we’re definitely onboard with this choice topped with parmesan and herbs. Truffle oil with lemon garlic aioli = genius. Never had anything like it before and could possibly be the most impressive fries we’ve had in NYC by far. Definitely recommend this vendor if you plan on dropping by.
Next we had the Lobster Roll.
Juicy, chewy lobster meat over fried bacon, tomatoes and lettuce. Wouldn’t say it was better than Boston lobster, but it ain’t bad for New York.
We also made it a point to pick up Dough’s famous Hibiscus Doughnut.
Nothing better than fried dough. Very subtle flavor of hibiscus glossed onto our gigantic doughnut; quite an interesting flavor we never had the pleasure of tasting before. Would definitely recommend to those looking for a unique tasting.
Lastly, we had the Blackberry Peach Jasmine Pop from People’s Pops.
Definitely recommend to all you berry fans. Perfect summer treat to cool yourself while looking through the vintage popup shops.
Gorgeous day to be out and about exploring Brooklyn for the first time. Definitely worth checking out all the different vendors if you have a spare weekend, just make sure you bring an empty stomach and lots of cash (because they don't except credit/debit cards here).
