HB Eats: Smorgasburg!

So I’m back in NYC after an action packed yet relaxing trip to Wisconsin and Colorado.  I had some wonderfully unique and delicious food experiences in both states which I will happily share with you over the next few weeks, but before I jump into those posts, I want to tell you about my long overdue visit to the Williamsburg waterfront for Smorgasburg!  Smorgasburg is the culinary spin-off of the Brooklyn Flea. This extremely popular market runs every Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and boasts over 100 food vendors,  serving a variety of eats such as chocolate-dipped frozen bananas at Nana's, gourmet grilled cheese and shakes at the Milk Truck, and Vietnamese street food at Queen’s Dahn Tu. 

One tempting creation that I noticed right away in the crowd was the Mexican sandwich from Cemita’s.  You definitely need a diagram to decipher all 10 layers of a Cemita, and thankfully they provide you with one!  I ordered the pork cemita with the works. The servers toast the buns in front of you before piling on the goodies.  All of the colorful layers and flavors blended well together in each bite. My favorite layers were the tangy and sweet pickled onions and the creamy avocado.

I thought nothing at the market could top my very satisfying Cemita sandwich, but I was dead wrong. I can safely say the berry doughnut from Dough bakery was the BEST doughnut that I’ve had in my entire life.  It was a pillow of happiness covered in a sweet berry glaze. Wow! 

Although the crazy days of summer are almost over, Smorgasburg is slated to stick around at in its outdoor location through November, so go check it out and let me know what your favorites are!
