Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market and Gourmet Cart

‘Are you fuckin’ kidding me?’
Hell(‘s Kitchen) Gatekeeper


The weekends never seem enough. After laundry, Sunday morning, we headed to Hell’s Kitchen for some grub. I’d seen the Cinnamon Snail cart at the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival the week before. Problem was I had no one to hold my place in line when I was starving, then when I came out, I was stuffed. When I heard that they were going to be in Hell’s Kitchen the very next weekend, it went to the top of my list.

The Flea Market is every Saturday and Sunday from 9am -5pm, weather permitting. Located on West 39th Street between 9th & 10th Avenues, every second Sunday of the month through October, select food trucks make an appearance.

I won’t lie, the flea market itself, I couldn’t have cared less about. I went for the food…and food I got. My sister and I both ordered a different sandwich so we could split them. Plus, we didn’t forget the desserts.

Working hard for the money.

It was tempeh versus seitan. For the both of us, the second one won out. For my sister, it was the texture of the first the held up the second. I just liked how much more was going on; the seitan sandwich was a delicious mess.

My strawberry donut was not as light as a Krispy Kreme. One of the biggest complaints about vegan/vegetarian desserts is how dense they are. I’ve had some pretty dense donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts, though, and these were much more moist than DD’s. Oh the yumminess. Never asked about the sugar, though. I wonder what marshmallows they use. Cream inside the smore donut was heavier but very creamy.
I love that I got the reflection of the other photographer!

My sister couldn’t say enough about the raw chocolate pudding. I thought $6 for pudding, but they give you A LOT.

The Gourmet Food Truck Bazaar will be held again this coming Sunday (5/8/2011). So, if you’re looking for a Mother’s Day gift, head over to the market on Saturday and check it out. Or take your mommy on Sunday for some food and let her pick out her own gift.
