Huarache (...and NO, NOT THE SANDALS):
They're pretty much just giant corn tortillas (fried masa?) with refried beans inside and then stuffed like tacos etc..
...what's brooklyn flea market without a little...cafe habana outpost GRILLED CORN!!!:
It was really great seeing them hussle about and make all the food and see how it was kept. I love all the random street fairs b/c I like seeing all the prepwork, all the whatever whatever all up in my face. I think it's riveting seeing them in action not in a kitchen (granted i never get to see the kitchens in restaurants anyway--but it's...hard to describe what I'd imagine is the rush of working in an entirely different, and very minute space! OH! contact high from all that quick thinking and organization and pre-calculation!!
Anyhoodle...so we got a plethora of things including....PUPUSAS!!
A pupusa (from Pipil pupusawa) is a thick, hand-made corn tortilla (made using masa de maíz, a maize flour dough used in Latin American cuisine) that is stuffed with one or more of the following: cheese (queso) (usually a soft Salvadoran cheese called Quesillo), fried pork rind (chicharrón), squash (ayote), refried beans (frijoles refritos), or queso con loroco (loroco is a vine flower bud from Central America). There is also the pupusa revuelta with mixed ingredients, such as queso (cheese), frijoles (beans), , and chicharrón or bacon.
The horchata was really creamy but at the bottom u could see the gunk of all the cinnamon and whatever else the drink was loaded with--however, still pretty damn good b/c it's perfecdtly seasoned as opposed to overly sweet like most horchata I've ahd--although the one in Tijuana was much cleaner and more refreshing. (mmm. yeah forgot to take pics of this.) Also had hibiscus tea and watermelon juice. YUMMY YUM YUM YUM. That's all...there are still 3 posts coming in regards to the cupcakes and other crap at the brooklyn flea. be patient, childrens.
