I visited this event on 17 April, 2016. I was astonished by the scale of the event itself and the options I had to choose from. I walked around for some time trying to explore more of the area. People who were serving were energetic and confident and that’s a good thing. What made it more attractive and fun was the location and weather itself.


I smelled BBQ, I looked around and there I saw one of the vendor’s Carnal were selling BBQ smoked short ribs which costed around $12 dollars. I think it was a bit pricey. There was a line I had to wait for my turn, it didn’t took that long. They prepared it very nicely and that BBQ smell was so catchy though. I was not sure if it worth the money I just invested on it but the first bite changed my opinion. Now I also wanted to try at least one more thing and was really curious for next surprise.

Now I understood the meaning of this quote I read the other day.


I always heard of people talking about taco’s but I never tried it before. I know it’s weird. That moment of glory was right in front of me when I saw Takumi Taco Stand. Again, I had to wait for my turn but I knew that I will get my first taco today. I was not worried about the cost this time, it costed around $5-6 dollars which made me extra happy. After having the first bite with my Pepsi soda, I don’t know if it’s a right combination. I had the same feeling like Neil Armstrong had when he took the first step on the moon. Taco overall was really good and I like the taste and the combination.

I think overall Smorgasburg event really worth a try and the atmosphere is always so welcoming and energetic.
