Wafels & Dinges!!
My friend S and I went to check out the Brownstoner Brooklyn Flea Market in Fort Greene (this was back in April). She was interested at checking out the furniture, fabrics and little weird things you find at flea markets. I was interested in the food vendors that were listed on the website AND I found out the waffle truck was going to be there.
So after a moment of trying to find each other in Fort Greene, we walked over to the flea market. It takes place every Sunday at a school yard. We did a quick walk around and browsed a bit but I wanted to eat so we went to searched for the food vendors. I was thinking I see a bright yellow truck serving warm waffles but instead it was a tent with 2 ladies. S got her waffle with nutella and I got strawberries with mine. S was a little disappointed that the waffles weren’t made fresh (they were already made and the ladies used the waffle machines to heat them back up) but I explained to her to save time and to keep the people moving they had to do that. So if you want freshly made waffles, try and find the truck at night when there aren’t much people. She did enjoy the waffle, though nutella is good on anything. As for mine adding whipped cream would have been super great but not gonna pay $1 just for whipped cream, maybe next time I’ll get a strawberry and nutella combo!
After another walk around the flea market we got bored and left. I wasn’t sure where to take S for lunch but decided to check if Habana Outpost was open yet. Luckily they were for Earth Day weekend! Woohooo!! I love Habana Outpost! Just a great hang out place with great food and frozen mojito. I wasn’t that hungry so I got a chicken quesadilla and S got a plate of rice and beans and we shared some plantanos (her kryptonite). The whole idea of Habana Outpost is being green. They get their power from their solar panels, a bike that you can pedal to blend your own smoothie, separate trash cans for plastic, paper, and others. The wait for the food can be a bit of a wait. After you order you take your order outside to the truck. In the past you literally have to stand near the truck because they yell out your order when its ready. This time that we went the lady had a mic like those hostess at dim sum places calling out your number over the speakers. Some times she would walk around calling the name. After a while we got our orders. S gave a thumbs up for the plantanos and the rice and beans. It’s a great place to have an afternoon snack and drink IF you can find a place to sit, does get super crowded.
