Mexicue sliders at Madison Square Eats

Not really Mexican, and not traditional BBQ, Mexicue takes flavors from both cooking styles to create its own thing, and after trying a couple sliders at Madison Square Eats, I can say it really works. I personally love both Mexican food and BBQ, and although I had heard good things about Mexicue, sometimes these fusion concepts end up being a lesser version of both types of food. But both the Mexicue Alabama BBQ Chicken Slider (with lettuce, cotija cheese, and their “chipotle mayo-ish” bama sauce) and the Pulled Pork slider (with guacamole spread, pickled red onions, and BBQ sauce) were flavorful, savory, and satisfying. They sort of taste like what you would expect given the ingredients, so if it sounds at all good, definitely try them.

Madison Square Eats food stands run daily through October 19th from 11am-9pm. It’s hosted by the Madison Square Park Conservancy and serves food in the Worth Square area just west of Madison Square Park (@ 24th and 5th Avenue). See the full list of food stands and menus here.

La Sonrisa, Mighty Balls and Macaron Parlour at Madison Square Eats

By Rebecca Bratburd

Madison Square Eats offers a pleasing diversity of foods from small snacks to hearty lunches just to the west of Madison Square Park. In an attempt to get a taste of many things, I ended up mixing an empanada with a vegetarian meatball slider and topped it all off with an immaculate macaroon.

La Sonrisa’s Coconut Curry Chicken empanada ($3.50) was sweeter than expected thanks to sweetened coconut milk and its flavor was incredibly mild. The snack was deep fried to perfection and the all-white shredded chicken inside was moist and satisfying. Where the empanada lacked in flavor, it made up for in crispy texture.

The veggie meatball ($3.50) is not Mighty Ball’s strong point, but it did have a very buttery texture from the cheese infused into it. Luckily, Mighty Balls boasts some seriously mouth-watering sauces: Mighty Hot Jalapeno Jelly, African Onion, Tempting Tomato, Not Your Average Brown Sauce, and Cranberry Horseradish. I went with Tempting Tomato, a simple yet fiery sauce that added a much needed kick to the veggie meatball.

Macaron Parlour’s Gianduja macaroon ($2.50) was the cherry on top of this meal. The sweet treat tasted so fresh it must have been made that morning. The thin, crisp layer gave way to a light cake-like cookie shell, and the hazelnut and semisweet chocolate ganache (think Nutella) center was the tops. Luckily, Madison Square Eats runs daily until October 9, giving me plenty of time to try all of Macaron Parlour’s 12 untraditional flavors of macaroons.
