I finally made it to Smorgasburg, a weekly outdoor food festival on the waterfront in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Smorgasburg is not exactly what I thought it would be. I thought there would be food purveyors more like the market near South Street Seaport with foods and goods that you take home, but it’s more like a food court with stands of Indian street food, ramen, banh mi, smoked meats, grilled cheese and more. I got a Bolivian pork sandwich and soda from La Casa de Camba.
The colorful stand was a fun spot with lively music playing and a bar on the side for patrons to sit. The pork sandwich was very good. I got mine mild, as I’m not a fan of spice, but it came in mild, medium and spicy. The soda was refreshing.

I did pick up some creative jam, grapefruit with smoked salt, from Anarchy in a Jar:
