Smorgasburg is held in the same lot as the BK Flea, but all the vendors are of the food variety. Fantastic. I went on the Fourth of July weekend, so it was a bit empty with people out of town for the holiday. But never fear, I still found some amazing things to eat.
I debated between a pulled pork sandwich from Mighty Quinn's and fried chicken on a biscuit with dill ranch + bacon from King's Crumb (check out a photo of that here!) The pork won out and quickly became the theme of my day.
I was tempted by so many things, but like I said… pork won out the rest of the afternoon.
This little gem is one of the BEST THINGS I have ever eaten. I took my first bite and started giggling. Because it made me that happy. It was juicy, thick bacon that had been perfectly sweetened with a little bit of maple and some delicious seasoning sprinkled on top. I ate it while sitting on the beach, looking at Manhattan.
And then I took the water ferry home. Sometimes it's just nice to live in a place where a ride on a ferry is part of your afternoon. See you again soon, Smorgasburg!
