Hester Street Fair

This weekend the Hester Street Fair opened with a great mix of food vendors. I started off with the Malbon Brothers collaboration with Frank's Chop Shop, a fantastic pulled pork sandwich on a soft roll topped with refreshing cole slaw and a spicy barbecue sauce.

An Choi was offering 3 types of banh mi and shrimp salad rolls.

The basil added tons of flavor to the meatballs and it came topped with loads of cilantro, aoli, cucumber, pickled carrots, pickled daikon,and mild jalapenos.

Kumquat was also there with their mini-sized cupcakes in maple bacon, honey banana peanut butter, salty caramel chocolate and lemon lavender.

The lemon lavender was light and refreshing, and the chocolate was drizzled with salty caramel.

Mile End offered cream cheese or smoked salmon on their Montreal bagels.

The cheesy and salted pretzels from Sigmund's were a huge hit, with the line going out of the park.

The avocado popsicle from La Newyorkina was a rich and creamy treat and so unexpected!

    this is jen, grace's friend---we met at chinatown cake club!

    grace and i were at chelsea market last weekend to indulge in some people's popsicles (DE-LISH) and then she got a savory smoked salmon crepe from Bar Suzette (right behind people's pops!). we said that we would inform our foodie friends to check them out...they roll it up and pack it in a super cute to-go paper wrapping that makes it super convenient and very a la the pomme frittes packaging.

    anywhos---how was the last chinatown cake club? we both missed it :P
    hope work is going well & we can share in another food outing again soon!!

    go to three tarts in chelsea and tell them that you heard about the 2 for 1 tasting table special for their homemade ice cream sammies (until 5/9) will not be disappointed!!
