Vendy Awards 2013

It’s Vendy Awards 2013! Once again, we showed our support and appreciation to the hard working street food vendors by over stuffing ourselves. This year the Vendy Awards took place at Industry City in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. It may had been one of the coolest and weirdest place I’ve been to for an event. Though compare to Governors Island, Industry City had more space and didn’t require taking the ferry across (I walked home afterwards, so close!).

So it seems the Red Hook vendors are on a roll. For the 3rd year in a row, the top prize went to a Red Hook vendor. The El Olomega (@elolomega), one of the more popular Red Hook trucks, won the judges over with their delicious pupusas. Hm…..pupusas.

Luke’s Lobster took People’s Choice, Nuchas took Rookie of the Year, Home by the Range took the Tide award for Most Messy Yet Tasty plus the award for Best Jersey vendor, Best of Market Vendor went to Khao Man Gai NY and Best Dessert went to Itizy Ice Cream.

Check out some photos from this year’s Vendy Awards.
