new york city crhonicles: food festival

On our way to dinner we passed a huge street festival. So since we had some time before dinner we decided to check it out.

It was a huge street festival of some kind near Broadway and Times Square. As usual there was huge masses of people checking out the goods being sold. In addition to the vendors selling things like jewellery and trinkets there was LOTS of food.

Although there wasn't a huge variety of vendors (it was the same vendors over & over again), the sheer number of people walking around and checking things out was overwhelming.

Some of the items being sold were:
- crepes with your choice of topping
- freshly made fruit smoothies
- arepas (baby corn with mozerella cheese)
- thai food (spring rolls, pad thai, etc.)

It was all so tempting, but we didn't want to spoil our dinner. I wish I had more time there just to eat more food.
