Washington Heights New York BBQ – Latin Style
Up in Washington Heights last weekend and as I got off the bus, I stepped into a street fair with some serious BBQ. You could smell it blocks away. It’s a lot different from the Harlem BBQ block party that I went to a few years ago. Here it was Latin style BBQ. I saw a few vendors with this really nice BBQ contraption – they have a cone shaped device that spins over a wood burning fire. As you rotate the meats, the drips from the fat further fuel the fire creating a nice smoky flavor that’s slowly imparted into the meat. I got a huge enourmous plate along with a potato, cole slaw and fried plantains for $12. Seems a little steep but there was so much food that I actually split this into 2 meals.
