Street Vendor Project's 10th Anniversary!!

Biryani Cart
Tuesday night was Street Vendor Project's 10th Anniversary party and we stopped by to party! And eat; you know there was lots of eating. Some of our faves were there: Biryani Cart, A-Pou's Taste, reigning Vendy winner Solber Pupusas, Treats Truck, and Cinnamon Snail (though Brownie did stick to her Lenten "no dessert" policy).

SVP 10th Anniversary Party
Judson Memorial was set up so that all the food alternately came out at two different tables on opposite sides of the space, and this actually worked out pretty well. The only issue was you'd line up thinking you'd get one dish, only to get to the table to find something totally different. Like I was like up thinking I'd get some King of Falafel, only to be towards the head of the line as the table switched over to Biryani Cart.

Biryani Cart
That just meant I got to have chicken kati rolls. There are worse things in the world that can happen to you than having to eat spicy kati rolls. Being at the beginning though did mean that the rolls didn't have ample time to warm up.

Solber Pupusas
Then we got on line for Solber Pupusas: pork, chicken, or beans. I always go beans, I don't know why. They also had the usual pickled slaw, jalapenos, and cream. This made me so amped for the upcoming Red Hook/outdoor Brooklyn Flea season.

A-Pou's Taste
After seeing what Patty's Taco had to offer (Brownie partook in that), we headed back for the table changed to A-Pou's Taste. Anyone in my Thursday evening class can tell you about my love for A-Pou's Taste. I regularly walk in the classroom a good twenty minutes early to have time to munch on my dumplings. I can help myself! They're right there and so delicious!

Cinnamon Snail
As the speeches went on, I took the time to have a little dessert. I do have to say that Cinnamon Snail's vegan doughnuts are pretty great. They are a little heavy, more cake than yeast, but I found that the chocolate pudding filled, chocolate cookie coated Brooklyn Blackou-esque doughnut hit the spot. Bring on the Vendys!
