Smorgasburg Is Back In Prospect Park

Smorgasburg came to Prospect Park right around the time I was getting sick of the weekly food event. I don’t think I went at all last year, even though it’s a 10 minute walk from my apartment. Yet it was so nice out this past weekend that I went for a walk in the park, and ended up at Smorgasburg. It was nice to be back, though it’s still crowded and overpriced. But one thing that struck me on this visit was the wide variety of food on offer – Sudanese sambusas, Japanese okonomiyaki, Portuguese pastry, just to name a few. The other thing that struck me is just how good Smorgasburg has gotten for vegans and vegetarians. There’s a vegan Filipino dessert stand, as well as vegan sandwiches from Monk’s Meats. The best thing I ate was the vegan BEC (bacon egg & cheese) from ATM Vegan Deli. ATM makes vegan versions of bodega classics, and the BEC was one of the most exciting things I’ve eaten in a long while. A thin tofu patty has the creamy texture of eggs, it’s topped with mushroom bacon, vegan cheddar, and a magical vegan “yolk” sauce. I have no idea how they make it but that sauce is something special. Maybe it’s for the best that I don’t make regular visits to Smorgasburg — when I only go every few years I’m still capable of enjoying it.
