On Saturdays in Williamsburg’s East River Park is the Brooklyn Flea’s Smorgasburg. With rows of food vendors, it’s a feast-apalooza.
Mimi & Coco serve Japanese street food.
Their Teriyaki Shrimp Balls are made in a cast iron grill, fried on the outside and topped with a mayo sauce and slivered almonds. They’re steaming hot, with a soft center and delicious. Six for $5.
Bon Chovie (a Bon Jovi pun) is run by husband and wife team Neil and Renae Holland.
Bon Chovie’s breakout hit is their fried anchovies, which you can order with or without the heads on. They’re crispy, with a touch of sea salt and a side of paprika aioli dipping sauce and pickled peppers.
Pizza Moto is a pop-up pizzeria, bringing a full-on wood-fired oven with them.
The pizzas are made to order and take about five minutes from prep to paper plate.
The pizzas range in cost from $8 - $10.
Neapolitan-style, the crust is very thin. This is the Testa Rossa - anchovies, garlic, pecorino and extra sauce.
If you’re not great at balancing a plate of food, they do have picnic tables, with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop.
Mighty Quinn’s serves pulled pork sandwiches.
End on a sweet note with Danny Macaroons, drizzled with sea salt caramel. Not something your dentist would recommend.
