Mercadito was handing out mango guacamole with fresh, crispy chips. The guacamole was creamy and thick, and even though we got a huge slice of avocado, it was still enjoyable.
Brownie was excited for Peaches Market, but made me eat their braised beef short ribs. Tender and juicy, I thoroughly enjoyed the ribs, but I still can't stand grits.
Kampuchea's Five-Spice Chicken Wings was another tender and juicy, if a little greasy, bite. But I can overlook grease if it's a deliciously spicy chicken wing that doesn't involve globs of sauce. I'd much rather eat these during the Super Bowl.
AM-Thai Chili Basil Kitchen has finally given me a curry puff to eat. I've tried yellow curry many different ways, none of which I liked, but this curry puff has the right mix of spices. It wasn't overwhelmingly curry or puff, it's just the right ratio of both.
Mama's Food Shop's macaroni and cheese gave us a good amount of needed creamy queso-therapy.
Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop gave me my first taste of chopped liver on rye, a combination I'd been declining for the better part of 20+ years. It tasted like liver, that is gamey, but creamy and mousse-like.
On the dessert side, Motorino didn't give out their pizza, they treated us to their insanely good raspberry, chocolate, and vanilla bombolonis. I had one of each, and plan on having more on Friday.
Smoke Joint also brought on dessert in the form of their Bourbon Cupcakes, aka a little sweet bite of heaven.
Van Leeuwen showed up and I got to eat my first little sundae of the season. Hopefully the trucks will be out and about this weekend!
Bonus non-food item: Brooklyn Kitchen inked me.
Of course, this isn't all, there's SOO much more. For more photos, click here. We'd like to take a second to thank Julie and Christina for having us!
