Coney Island just unveiled its much needed makeover. The rides look glossier and more death defying. Plus its boardwalk was just named #2 in the nation by National Geographic. Still when it comes to boardwalk snacks, the best is an oldie but goodie: mango-on-a-stick.
True, it's not classic fried, greasy goodness. It's better. Sweet and spicy, thirst quenching, and 100% natural. Bonus: it's also bathing suit-friendly. Best 3-buck, guilt-free beach snack ever!
Find the roving 'mango cart' on the boardwalk and watch the skilled woman transform the perfectly ripe fruit into a flowering blossom in seconds. I douse mine in hot sauce and pico de gallo spice, Mexican-style. It's really, really messy. That's the best part.

THere's a mango cart in Union Square, too, if you've a tropical craving, but don't have time to travel to the beach. :)ReplyDelete
You're absolutely right, Kim. I happily discovered her too last summer and wrote about my first taste of mangos Mexican style:ReplyDelete
