So Brooklyn flea decided to get a bunch of tasty restaurants, hole in the walls, entrepreneurs, etc…and stuff an assortment of them into two different locations on the weekends. What an amazing fucking idea. I decided to participate (with my partner in crime CPA) in the Sunday Edition of Smorgasburg, which so happens in DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) *i wonder who will notice the moon in the picture lol.
Red Hook Lobster Pound: First up, as we arrived we saw this lobster joint, and figured why not? There was a choice of getting Maine or Connecticut versions of their lobster rolls. Maine is cold with mayo, and Connecticut they poach upon order and drizzle with melted hot butter. Since I’m biased and a hardcore Maine Lobster person….I stuck with the Maine rendition (perhaps i’ll try the other sometime…but doubt it…warm lobster…in a roll? wth… lol. jk…sort of…afteral it is a matter of preference.)
WOW! this was pretty good! (not as good as Luke’s, and nothing close to Maine’s Red’s Eats) but it was a great way to start our feasting! I’d definitely recommend trying one of these out, and at the price of 16$ not bad at all!
Well i was fiending for some ice cream since there was no good ice cream at Smorgasburg Dumbo, and we were so close to the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory…so why not?
This was where Wonderwoman and MoneyMaker parted ways to attend to their newborn. CPA and I were overly stuffed and walked around the Brooklyn Promenade….the area is quite beautiful…and still in development…I highly recommend taking a trip out there…parking is not that bad…I parked pretty far, which i didn’t mind as a good walk after all that food always feels good.
We drove by Grimaldi’s and wanted to partake, but the line was freaking almost to the end of the block and around…no thanks. I’d definitely like to come back here…have the whole summer…but my next Smorgasburg participation will be in Willie B. looking forward to it. woot!

So i had seen on JoJu’s facebook that they had posted something about Banh Mi Fries and Kimchi fries…and i love fries..and the pics they posted looked amazing..and Jelly had also mentioned to me that i should definitely try them…so why the hell not? New Fries Menu: - click for larger menu –
Fries came crispy and hot and oh so ready to be dug in to, had to get them both “loaded” aka with fried egg on top! Kimchi Fries (loaded): $5.25
Seasoned & battered french fries topped with mild spicy mayo, kimchi, chopped scallions, cilantro and jalapenos. (got this loaded AKA FRIED EGG ON TOP!!!)
The crunchiness of the kimchi and fries mixed well together, only amplified by the warm egg yolk. If the tiny kick from the kimchi didn’t get you, the spicy mayo added another one, and then another tiny spicy bump from the jalapenos. All in all, very well done. Love how they get the fries so crispy! Banh Mi Fries (Loaded): $5.25
Seasoned & Battered French fries topped with special house sauce, mild spicy mayo, spicy green sauce, pickled daikon & carrots, chopped cilantro and jalapenos. (got it loaded again so topped with a fresh fried egg)
I really love all the vegetables in this, all the different flavors stacked on top of each other…each bite tasting different from the next….I find myself trying to get as many of the ingredients as i can into my mouth at once.
and then just popping that warm runny egg all over the mess of goodness….just completes this work of art…every bite different…sooo worth the calories… lol
So if i had to compare the two…I’m afraid to say, the Banh Mi fries definitely beat out the Kimchi fries…and since they are the same price, i feel the Banh Mi fries are definitely best bang for buck!!! Summation: Everyone that i’ve taken to have Banh Mi fries loves them…and can’t get enough of them…Even my mom loves them…. I highly recommend them…if you are a JoJu friend, this is definitely a no brainer.
What’s even better is that if you order them via take out…you don’t have to worry about the fries getting soggy, as they crisp up (well done) the fries so that the crispy-ness holds up pretty well against the fried egg (of course i’m not saying leave it in the box for four hours before eating it…of course it will get soggy…)
Another great “JoJu Invention” lol.

Almost everytime i go to Mitsuwa this bread is always sold out…on rare occasions i’m able to purchase it…
it’s sooooo good…love making sandwiches, or toasting it up and pouring condensed milk on it…
but my all time favorite is to slice it a little thin…drop it into some raw egg…let it soak a little…
and french toast it up with some maple syrup….
love it a little raw on the inside….sooooo goood…. *tear. highly recommend you try this.
