All About a Patty Melt

patty-melt

The prices for some of these things in NYC are crazy, but I guess that’s what you have to pay for delicious. I was first introduced to the patty melt during a brief semester at Ole Miss, and the craving for this burger topped with onions and cheese, crammed between two slices of rye doused in butter, and finished in a frying pan has never relented. If it’s on the menu, it’s being ordered.

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.
