Decided to check out the Smorg in person and against my better judgement I came here hungry.
I can report that as of 2:45p it's beautiful out, and packed with foodie and sun-lovers
But of the well known and desired food tents, most have serious lines.
Also I won't call anybody out but $4 Croissants & $7 tamales are not my thing.
The shrimp was very good but the country sausage turned a familiar favorite of mine into a delicious new experience which sounds corny but it's true they had optional toppings of corn and almond flakes which were surprisingly good. I ate it so fast I took no pictures.
3:40 about to get my lamb-burger on from "Landhaus" along with a mint lemonade.
Got the burger, very good! Nice bit of feta shiracha and a medium rare lamb patty. Very nice.
Also I guess people are getting their fill
(or food is running down?) cause the lines are running shorter.
Also can anyone in here say "excuse me" rather pushing their way through a crowd? Yeesh.
I wanted to try the "people's pops" but I was full up on mint lemonade, next time...
Another proud Wolverine.
So all in all I now see why Smorgasburg is the event it is. If you've got a squad of friends it's definitely worth hitting it off if for no other reason than to extend your comfort foodie zone. And with offerings like Rhubarb, Cornflakes on Country Sausage stuffed Teriyaki Balls and more there's definitely room to expand mind and body.
I'll be back next week with more full mouthed opinions.
