I remember reading about Anthony Bourdain’s idea of opening a food hall in NYC with the concept being something along the line of world foods. It was a while back and I can’t recall the last time I heard any mention of it until last night.
Eater reports that the food hall will be called Bourdain Market. They also mention rumors of it opening at 3 World Trade Center.
Bourdain Market will be all about street food and should have around 50 vendors from around the world.
This definitely sounds like an exciting project.
While you need to be careful with street food, Kim and I have really enjoyed the hawker markets of Singapore (we visited 3 or 4) and a variety of different street food in Thailand along with a bunch of other places. One kind of street food (not sure if you’d really call it a food) that I didn’t like was fat ass ants, which we tried in Bogota.
Are you a fan of street food & food halls?
As you could probably tell, I’m a fan. Some of my favorites are Chomp Chomp Food Center in Singapore, Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia, Mathallen Food Hall in Oslo and Berg’n in Brooklyn, NY.
If you’re a fan of street food & food halls, please share some of your favorites with us.
