I tried to go to the NYC vegetarian festival, but found a line wrapped around the block and the venue at full capacity. I then thought at least I'd grab something from The Cinnamon Snail, but found yet another wrap around line. Glad I went there last season.
Do I get an A for effort?
On another crowded morning I stopped by the Brooklyn Flea for the Bakesale for Japan.
I bought some Korean Sweet Potato Bread from Mis Pensamientos.
Then waited in line for Salvadorian Pupusas. Luckily the kind pupusera made mine special sans cheese. The delicious corn masa pattie was filled with beans and spinach and topped with cabbage, hot sauce, and jalapenos.
La Esquina-an authentic taqueria in old Noho. I had the acelgas taco (beans, spinach, pico, and salsa verde) with a side of moros y cristianos (black beans and white rice).
Calexico is a food truck turned restaurant in Greenpoint created by three bros from...Calexico. I'm always excited when I see tofu on the menu, so I went for the Tofu Asado Torta. Grilled chili-lime tofu stacked into ciabatta bread with a side of spicy fries.
