Clockwise from top left: Vietnamese iced coffee over crushed ice, coconut tapioca pudding, and a summer roll from Bunker (we forgot peanut sauce – oops); vegetable samosa and cilantro dipping sauce from Nepalese Indian; and foufou & okra (foufou are like dumplings) and grilled fish & attieke (fermented cassava that resembles couscous) from Bed-Stuy’s Abidjan.
District 37 Assemblywoman and honoree (AND RIDGEFOOD FAN — SHE TOLD US HERSELF!) Catherine Nolan gave a rousing, inspiring speech praising the event and all the diverse restaurants that participated. She predicted that the Taste of Ridgewood will be on Ridgewood’s “permanent landscape.”
We loved this sandwich platter from renowned German restaurant Zum Stammtisch.
See you next year!
