Hooked on Red Hook
Needed to go to Ikea. Again. Our love is wearing off now that we are on our 3rd trip in 3 weeks. The ferry is less of a fun adventure and more of a huge time sink. So we decided to add the air of adventure and discovery back into our Ikea trip by visiting the famous Red Hook Ball Field Vendors. Right next door to the Ikea in Brooklyn are some soccer fields that vendor trucks line up around and sell some of the best South/Latin American food in NYC. Started with a pork huarache and some horchata, then grabbed some pupusas from the El Olomega truck. One pork, one plantain. Everything was delicious and helped make yet another trip to Ikea suddenly seem not so bad.
