Heads -- I win, Tails -- You lose

You can't lose w/ the "Jersey Style" fried anchovies at Bon Chovie's Smorgasburg outpost. These crispy critters are lightly breaded and deep fried whole. You crunch through these suckers bones and all, like a fucking savage from Perth Amboy. A side of sweet pickled peppers, and smoked paprika mayo shake it up w/ some welcomed tang to balance the experience. 

There are a lot of edible options at Smorgasburg, but I guarantee these will have you wild in the streets.

Crepe'n on a Come Up

The name "mille crêpes" implies a thousand layers, but I count closer to twenty. Semantics aside, this curious confection is an edible work of art. Alternating layers of chewy crepes are suspended in a rich French cream. The green tea variety really rang my bell, but there are a bunch of different flavors, including chocolate, strawberry, and even chestnut. I'd say try them all, but at $8 a slice, you might want to choose wisely!  Lady M Confections, 41 East 78th Street, New York, NY 10075

Not the first thing that comes to mind when someone asks how you like your eggs. The cleverly named "egg cubed" is a deviled egg, topped with sea urchin roe (on the left) and salmon roe (on the right). Visually striking and fun to eat, I'd recommend this curious consumable to anyone visiting the Bay Area.  Urchin Bistrot, 584 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA 94110.
