Brooklyn Grub Crawl Summer 2011

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Tiff and I are a 2-girl grub crawl duo who (partially) ate our way through 2 Brooklyn fleas. Not pictured in this entry is our additional dinner at Buttermilk Channel later that night...I feel full thinking of it still. For more Nyc grub crawls check out my posts from last year-> Day 1, Day 2, Day 3.

Starting the day at the Brooklyn Flea Fort Green: 176 Lafayette Ave. (btw. Clermont + Vanderbilt Ave.) Saturday 10am-5pm, Rain or Shine, Bishop Loughlin memorial high school. There was a heat wave that persisted well into the night.
Pork and loroco pupusas-yummers! loved the crunchy peppers and pickled veggies that went along with it. I skipped the sour cream.
The Good Fork Oyster Po' Boy sliders-delicious and bite-sized. Oysters were breaded well, perfectly cooked and offered a nice silky texture beneath the crunch. 
Porchetta! Nom nom nom!
Closeup-porchetta bun included the crispy skins too.
People's Pops-I am not a fan. Besides being horribly expensive, it really didn't taste that fantastic. Tiff's bartlett pear shaved ice ($2.50) was dilute and bland and my apricot-salted caramel tasted better in theory than on tongue ($3.50).
Picking up some rhubarb for a summery pie. Another back view of Tiff, as seen here from last year.
Despite having our fill at Fort Green, I had to check out the new Brooklyn Flea SmorgasbordSaturday 9am-5pm, Rain or Shine, East River Waterfront (btw. North 6 + 7 St.)

Beer-making Kit
Coulhaus icecream. The ice-cream flavors and cookie options were cool but flavors were not intense or outstanding. My favorite is still Van Leeuwen.
balsamic fig and mascapone between a brioche sugar cookie-Could not taste the balsamic fig very well
brown butter and candied bacon ice-cream between pistachio cookies-Meh, the bacon was overpowered by the cream and the brown butter flavor was not distinct either.

That beer making kit is too small to be of good function :D
