Every once in a while, you just have to step back and be thankful for the things you have. Especially when those things include a picture of Chrissy Teigen eating a Ramen Burger in front of you. Thank you, benevolent god of the internet and snacks. We shall pay our good fortune forward.
We actually owe our gratitude to MTV, who set us up last week with Chrissy and asked us to tackle some of Brooklyn’s best food in anticipation of the 2013 Video Music Awards at Barclays Center. This is the show’s triumphant return to our great city (it was last held here in 2009), and we were honored to be a part of the lead up to Sunday’s party. This one is gonna be special.
In order to properly showcase some of Brooklyn’s best eats, we looked to Smorgasburg, home to local favorites like Mighty Quinn’s BBQ, Blue Marble Ice Cream, and the most newsworthy thing to happen in this country since the Cronut, Ramen Burger. Check the video out to see if it lives up to the hype. Spoiler alert – it absolutely f*cking does.
The Video Music Awards can be seen live on MTV at 9pm EST, this Sunday, August 25th.
