A La Carte

You can sample foods from various countries every weekend between May and November from parked food carts. Central American, South American and Carribean foods are represented: chorizo on a stick, roasted corn, ceviche, tacos, pupusas and various fruit drinks.

You can read an article about the weekly event, here.


Mark and I lunched with friends Saturday, in Red Hook. We sat out on the grass, sampling delicious foods from the numerous trucks parked nearby.

We wolfed down a couple pork tacos wrapped in fresh corn tortillas, a spicy red ceviche with shrimp, and a cool watermelon drink.

After a short break, we shared roasted chorizo on little slices of bread, and pupusas - fried pancakes, stuffed with pork and cheese, with a side of slaw.

Mark was so entranced with everything, he's pledged our next several weekends to return visits. Delicious!

Pupuyas sound so hilarious to me, 'cause in Finnish a pupu is a bunny! It's a real pleasure to eat out in good company. Summer luxury at its best.

Thanks Meead!

Hi Susu
I checked and it's actually 'pupusa'. I'd never heard of them before and now I won't forget them.

Wow, you certainly get around!

Love the shot...I love people shots, I'm just chicken :-)

And a pupuya is a papaya pupusa :-)

Bettye <- wishing we had food carts out here in Islip....

That sounds good! Eating outdoors always seems to make food taste better doesn't it.
