For a change-up from Mile End's smoked meat, consider this salami and mustard sandwich on a kaiser roll.
'mile end' on Serious Eats
Should I admit that I made my first visit to Williamsburg, Brooklyn's Saturday-only hipster artisanal food bazaar Smorgasburg this past Saturday? Ahh, why not. What did I find? Some insanely serious food that we haven't written about. Until now, that is.
Mile End's dinner menu is not for the faint of heart. A compromise among these hard-hitting carnivorous entrées and, well, a romaine salad, is the cod fritter falafel ($11), which gives traditional falafel a run for its money. Shaped like falafel, these cod fritters have a light, crisp crust (no grease!) with a flaky fish interior. You'll wish for plenty more in your order.
The crew at Serious Eats has loved the idea of Mile End, a self-styled Montreal deli in New York, since it opened just about one year ago. We all love the Montreal-style smoked meat we've eaten at Schwartz's, and of course our love of pastrami and smoked meat knows no bounds. It's just that every time we have tried Mile End's smoked meat, it hasn't been quite right. But how does their brand-new dinner menu stack up?
