Are you a BIG-time foodie? Then you're gonna want to read this post top to bottom!
In honor of National Foodie Day — but also appropriate for any day that you're looking for an excellent meal — Rachael shared six foodie favorites, all of which are featured at Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood's "Smorgasburg."
FYI: We're talking about the largest weekly open-air food market in America, featuring 100 local vendors — each of which will leave you SALIVATING with the edible delights they shared on our show.
So if you're in the Big Apple (or hitting it soon!), read on for the six places that boasts treats every foodie must try. (And see the food up close in the video above!)
Btarts served Rachael (and guest host Emeril!) their signature butter tarts — gooey and flay, and oh so Canadian. (As founder Asher puts it, it's like pecan pie — but better.)
2. BREAD & MONKEY, INC.
As 14-year-old founder Jack shared, the company's beloved banana bread is a family recipe he decided to start selling after it was a HUGE hit with friends. (How proud are you, mom?!)
3. KING STREET
"I've got some big buns, but THESE are big buns," joked Rachael, sampling the company's two best-selling brioche sticky buns — one with cream cheese icing, and the other with a brown sugar and honey glaze. (For a little kick, Rach drizzled them with bourbon soak!)
4. ROLL PLAY VIET NOMS
Founder Hoi showed Emeril three different spring rolls (a beef, a chicken and a veggie), all of which are accented with their own sauce — one of which is called the "sexy sauce." Need we say more?
5. BOLIVIAN LLAMA PARTY
The "three Llama brothers" whipped up their signature Bolivian empanadas — or, as they call them, their "empanadas on steroids." Their homemade stock helps make them SUPER moist — just ask Emeril, he couldn't stop eating them!
6. POP PASTA
This last one? Spaghetti donuts. Seriously, what's not to love?!
