Taste the East End was a great event to discover some of Long Island’s best restaurants, beverages, and food products.
Here are my 5 Must Trys from Taste the East End
Charlie’s Legendary Onions – For more than 50 years, family owned Charlie’s Famous Hot Dogs roadside stand was a mecca for Long Island hot dog lovers thanks to their legendary onion sauce.
Now you can purchase their legendary onions, which are not only great for hot dogs, they are good on kielbasa, burgers and crostinis. Definitely pick up a jar for your next BBQ.
Montauk Iced Tea – There is nothing more refreshing than ice tea on a warm summer day. Montauk Beverage works began as a small Long Island company 5 years ago, operating primarily out of the trunk of a Hyundai. They developed of a natural iced teas that does not taste artificial or sacrifice flavor. Montauk Beverage Works have a variety of iced teas including White Iced Tea with peaches, Iced Citrus Black Tea and Half Lemonade Half Ice Tea. Make sure you check out their website to see which of your local stores carry them.
Fat Ass Fudge – I first saw Fat Ass Fudge on Shark Tank and it looked amazing. Even though the company was sold to Port Jefferson-based company Chocology Unlimited, quality is still top-notch. Their fudge is rich, decadent and made with the finest ingredients, definitely go try some!
The Birchwood of Polish Town – The Birchwood Restaurant was serving up kielbasa and potato pierogies that would my Polish grandma would approve. Definitely go eat at the Birchwood Restaurant not a stand during the Polish Festival this summer!
Tainos Sofrito & Mojo – Tainos Sofrito & Mojo had festival attendees lined up to taste Vivian Jarrett’s Tostone Cups with Sofrito Ceviche and Mojo. The smell of the tostone cups caused attendees to line up taste her homemade Puerto Rican cuisine. Definitely check out the Tainos Sofrito & Mojo Facebook page to try some food at a local farmers market near you.
