The Perks of Eating at the MLB All-Star Game

hangover-burger
 
For the fan, a baseball game is as much about the hang out as it is about the game. Those lucky enough to be in attendance at tonight’s All-Star game in Minneapolis will have the opportunity to watch the best players in action and eat some terribly good food while doing it. In addition to pouring beers for themselves in the new self-serve draft machines, fans at Target Field can select from an array of new food including: Lobster Corn Dogs, a 1 lb Hangover Burger (10 ounces of ground beef, six ounces of ground bacon, fried egg & fried onions), and a Footlong BratDog (a hot dog inside of a bratwurst that’s been wrapped in bacon and covered with sauerkraut and onions). Chances are those who indulge in the offerings will have trouble leaving their seats afterwards, but hey, there’s a game happening anyway.

But with all these comebacks, one can hope that somewhere down the road Hostess will resurrect SuzyQ’s and pudding pies.

A Taste of Hawaii in Brooklyn

brooklyn-wahines
 
Taking over the night-shift four days a week at Stan’s Cafecito, Brooklyn Wahines is Oahu native Siobhán Edwards’ new pop-up restaurant in South Williamsburg. Born out of her NYC catering company Red Wagon, the casual spot features a menu with Hawaiian / French Vietnamese influences, and consists of four extraordinary dishes; a Hawaiian Style Ahi Poke Bowl, Shoyu Chicken Bowl, Banh Mi sandwiches, and a Japanese Hiyashi Chuka noodle salad. Curious as to the roots of the restaurant and its future plans, we asked Siobhán some questions and she was nice enough to share a recipe from Brooklyn Wahines, Japanese Hiyashi Chuka noodle salad.
 
 
How did Brooklyn Wahines come about?

Brooklyn Wahines was a dream I had since moving to New York and starting my catering company, Red Wagon, three years ago. I always wanted a small neighborhood spot that allowed me not only to showcase some of my favorite dishes but also a chance to enjoy the hospitality side of the food business and be a part of the neighborhood that I live and raise my children in. Wahine means woman in Hawaiian so the name Brooklyn Wahines is simply representative of a forever local island girl at heart who now also calls Brooklyn home.
 
The menu looks delicious. What’s been the most popular dish?

The mouth watering smell of the shoyu chicken is what draws people into the restaurant without fail, but word is getting around that my pork banh mi sandwich are the real deal.
 
What happens at the end of the summer? Do you have any plans for a permanent space?

I’m hoping to continue Brooklyn Wahines beyond the summer. If things continue to grow as they have been, we hope to become a permanent face in this neighborhood and a fixture in Williamsburg’s evolving food scene.
