Red Hook Food Vendors

I went out to the Red Hook neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY this past weekend to check out the Red Hook Food Vendors. They’ve been serving up home-made Latin American cuisine from their food trucks for some 30 years now. These vendors made news last year when NYC tried to regulate these small mom & pop businesses, causing an uproar with the neighborhood and local politicians. The City relented and the food vendors stayed, but the publicity helped raise their profile.

The food is incredible! The fresh shrimp tacos were among the best I ever had. It’s a haul to get to the Red Hook Ball Fields (Cnr. of Bay & Clinton Sts.) where the 10 vendors are  located, but it’s worth the trip. Easiest way is by car, but you can take the F train to Smith St./9th Ave. Station and it’s about a 7 block (10 minute) walk.
