Eat, Drink and Party with David Chang
Posted by MSLO Blogger
On Friday night, I trekked to Brooklyn to kick off the weekend with ridiculously good Asian grub. I went to the Lucky Rice Festival 's Night Market hosted by David Chang. The event was held at The Archway under the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn. Food was served from restaurants ranging from Dirt Candy, a vegetarian restaurant in the East Village to the swanky Setai restaurant in South Beach, Miami. By the end of the night, I was in a food coma! Take a look at my photos below. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo with David Chang. There's always next year though.

4 My first stop was the Dessert Truck. They served a Lemongrass Thai Basil Sorbet.
5 This area of the market served an array of Malaysian cuisine.
6 Curry Mee, a Malaysian dish from Penang restaurant.
7 It's the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck!
8 I ate their vanilla soft serve ice cream with ginger syrup! It was exactly what I needed on a warm Friday night.
9 Kampuchea restaurant served a pork meatball numpang with chili mayo, cilantro, pickle carrots and cucumber. It was one of the best meals of the night.
10 Buddakan made tuna tartare spicy rolls with crispy shallots and ponzu. Yum!!!
11 Kum Gang San for Korean Cultural Service served assorted Korean street food.
12 These treats were doughy and sweet.
13 Korean pancakes.
14 I feel in love with Fresh Ginger Ale by Bruce Cost. It was so flavorfu, natural and refreshing. I even purchased a few bottles to take home with me.
15 I'm not sure what this lady was serving but she had a cool outfit on.
16 Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of Dirt Candy served...
17 barbecue rainbow carrot buns with carrot Hoisin sauce!
18 My Brooklyn Kitchen (a food blog that also does events) served delicious bin dae duk, a Korean mung bean pancake made with vegetables, shrimp and bacon. Check out their take on the Lucky Rice fest: http://mybrooklynkitchen.com/2010/05/03/my-first-big-event-lucky-rice/
19 It looks like a nightclub but it's the night market!
