Taste of Bronx Night Market Vendors

Bronx Night Market is a food based event in the Bronx, on Fordham Road, that happens every Saturday from April-November allowing you to taste all types of culture and cuisine. This time I started off with the popular Katz Delicatessen Pastrami Sandwich. It is filling though so share or order one to take home. After that I went for a birria taco from ‘Mama Silog.’ Got my nephew some fried ice cream from Sam’s Fried Ice Cream and ended with some fiery tacos (jerk pork and codfish) from Wah Gwaan. Way better experience from last year, so if you’re around or craving something hot or sweet, stop by.
