Red Hook Food Trucks

I've been meaning to check out the food trucks by the Red Hook Ball Fields for the past 2 years or so. Finally got the chance this past weekend. I wish I had a bigger stomach so I could try more stuff because all I had was the mixed ceviche and spicy pork huarache. But the 2 things I tried was pretty good.


Spicy Pork Huarache So this pic doesn't highlight the best part of this dish which is the meat hiding under all that guac and salsa. I know, I could have moved it and focused on the bits hanging out on the side. But I was in too much of a hurry to dig in. Plus, my friend was hungry too. We joked about having a support group for People With Friends Who Won't Let Them Eat Until Food Porn Has Been Properly Aquired. There needs to be pics of people on the sidelines with forks in their hands drooling and anxiously waiting when it comes to food porn.


Mixto Ceviche I had my reservations about getting ceviche off a tiny food cart especially on a hot summer day (there was a heat advisory the day I went) but it was pretty good. In fact, it's better than some ceviche I've had in restaurants.


The only con about getting food at the Red Hook Ball Fields is that there's not much else nearby (unless you want to take a stroll to IKEA or walk further up for the shops on Smith and Court). My friend mentioned the last time she was here, she met some folks who made a trek all the way from Queens via subway just for the food. I don't know, food was good. Just not sure it was THAT good. But you always gotta try it once I guess.


There was one more thing we really wanted to try which was the papusa. But the line for that truck was pretty long and we were already stuffed from the other food we got. Think I will have to make another trip back just for that. Although I heard you might be able to get it at the Brooklyn Flea as well. Anybody tried the papusa? Is it worth the wait in line?
