The Ninth Avenue Food Festival
As some of you New Yorkers know, the Ninth Avenue Food Festival is coming up. It will be on May 16th-May 17th. It runs regularly between 39th-57th Street. What are your favorite things to order there?
I think this year it might shorter. On the Port Authority end, the International ?, the fishmongers/store put out an impressive spread of seafood. There is roast pork from Uncle Nick's as well as Walton's ? KeyLime pie off the van; pies from Little Pie Company on 43rd. Bread twirls from Amy's Bread... and yummy stuff from Bali Nussdah. London's small mini burgers.
i just contacted one of the local merchants i know and he told me that the festival is still on for this weekend-rain or shine.
the list of things i like- is so long but ill name a few

im on the fence about millie's pierogies.my friends like them;i dont.
and many more that i cant think of at the moment.
LNG's advice is sound. stay away from the generic food carts and trucks. when i see tourists eating turkey legs or ears of corn i just shake my head.
