MEET THE NEW SMORGASBURG VENDORS DEBUTING IN JULY
Can they compete with big-time veterans like Mighty Quinn's, Dough, and Red Hook Lobster Pound? Remember that competition is stiff to get into the Brooklyn food festival, so you can trust that the following spots will sell great food. http://grb.st/1SQDpAj
- •Parish Po' BoysYou'll find classic New Orleans food at this stand, which includes things like jambalaya, crawfish pasta, shrimp etouffee, and the beloved sandwiches.
- •Ithaca HummusLebanese-style hummus is the specialty here, and that means it has less tahini, and more lemon juice and garlic. Overall, it's lighter than traditional hummus.
- •The Brooklyn Baking BaronsThis vendor focuses on only one treat — honey-whiskey cake. Very nice.
- •Nu BurgerThis new vendor will offer Brooks Headley some healthy competition, as its specialty is homemade veggie burgers. There are dairy-free milkshakes, too!
- •Santa SalsaThis Brooklyn truck is setting up shop with Venezuelan street foods like empanadas and yuca fries.
- •Better HalfAll the Smorgasburg early risers can start their days with brunch-themed food, like a Bloody Mary chopped salad. (Saturdays only.)
- •Fedoroff's Roast PorkWhile Grub is skeptical about any New York place tooting "real Philly sandwiches," it's worth trying this vendor's roast-pork offerings and gravy fries.
- •Cheesesteak by the TruffleistPhilly food ― so trendy! This place goes far beyond "wiz, wit" and offers truffle-topped cheesesteaks.
- •Ark FoodsContinuing the trend of twee food, Ark sells fried Shishito peppers with various dipping sauces. It'll be a nice snack when you're already stuffed.
- •The Brother's SoulSouthern bean pie is made with a base of navy beans, but it actually has a sweet taste and a custardlike consistency.
- •Lincoln and BerryIf you're in need of a gift, grab some California olive oil and olives here. (Sundays only.)
- •ChouxpetteAnd this new vendor uses pâte à choux (the base of gougères, éclairs, and profiteroles) to make cream-filled treats (Saturdays only.)
