Grub Street Food Festival- Sunday October 5- NYC

The 5th annual Grub Street Food Festival is back tomorrow at the Hester Street Fair.

The event takes place on New York City’s Lower East Side from 11AM- 5PM.

Last year Kim, Lucas and I attended the festival for the first time. We had a great time and tried out some awesome food. Check out my post about our experience here. It looks like some of the same vendors will be at the event this year along with some new ones. Continue reading Grub Street Food Festival- Sunday October 5- NYC

Recap: Our Visit To The Grub Street Food Festival

On Sunday we spent a few hours eating and hanging out at the 4th Annual Grub Street Food Festival. We were lucky to have beautiful weather here in New York City.  There were lots of vendors at the festival selling a great variety of foods and desserts.

When we arrived (around noon) it wasn’t overly crowded and we didn’t have to wait on any lines when ordering but this soon changed. By 1:00-1:30 many booths had long lines and it was much harder to find a place to sit.

Some we’ve had before and a few others were new ones that we had read about thanks to Grub Street. It turned out that both our favorite meal  ande dessert were from places that we were trying for the first time. Lucas’ favorite was an old-time favorite of ours and we even took some home for his  dinner.

Here is what we ate:

Whenever I see them at a food event I have to get one of their pizzas. This time we went with the “Bee Sting” which is made with mozzarella, tomato, honey, soppressata, chili flake and chili oil.

Roberta’s Bee Sting pizza seemed to miss the mark. The amount of spice overpowered any of the other flavors. I do like a little spice in my food but it’s not the only flavor that I want to taste. Next time I’ll just go with a Margherita pizza.
