Tons of people are excited about Smorgasburg, and it seems almost all of them get up earlier than you and have an irrationally high tolerance for waiting in lines. And while madhouses like Mighty Quinn's, Landhaus, and Milk Truck will likely die down later in the season, here's a guide to some completely legit eats that (as of now) only require quick waits
If you plan on waiting on lines later, hit Handsome Hank's for this massive fried whiting sandwich on Texas toast, and do it with hot sauce.
Another massive sandwich that will tide you over for any future waits. This one's from Smorgas vet Heartbreaking Dawn's Hot Sauces, but represents their first foray into eats and is even more awesome than it looks, thanks to charcoal pit beef on the the bottom and more lump crab than you thought was sandwich-able on top
So what if the line is out of control for Buttermilk Channel? Get your fried chicken fix at newcomer Beehive Oven's biscuit stand -- it's excellent and comes topped with an award-winning squash
... oh wait, it's potato hash from Egg and Parish Hall. Which is actually fine, since it's toppable with pimento cheese, bacon, kielbasa, and short rib
It's beer cheese, and they want to give you free samples. Oblige them at Floyd's Beer Cheese stand
That's right, it's the noodle kugel double down: two pieces of seared kugel with a slathering of farmer's cheese and onions in the middle, from Scharf & Zoyer
While technically not food, this shirt from Danny's Macaroons is still fantastic.
