Post image for Maharlika featured on Grubstreet!

Not only did our cupcake vendor Robicellis get a shout out on Grubstreet yesterday but today featured a post on the very same site by our friend Jenny Miller who wrote about our Filipino food vendor Maharlika! We’re super excited to have them join the marketplace – their pop up brunch has been drawing crowds. On the menu: Ilog breakfasts dishes, mango french toast (don’t sleep on this one, run, don’t walk) and cocktails mixed up by Enzo Lim from Minetta Tavern with recipes like ‘Pacquio’s Punch’ and ‘Bloody Clara’ (fish sauces is added to a classic Bloody Mary, sounds gross but trust us!). They’ll be putting together a one off dinner at Alias on Clinton Street at the end of the month and are due to continue their pop up status by adding dinners a few times a week at Leon, the same location they run their brunches.

Maharlika Also Coming to DeKalb Market

Yesterday came the exciting news that Robicelli’s and other food vendors would set up this summer in the shipping-container-housed DeKalb Market in Downtown Brooklyn. Now we’ve gotten wind of some of the other food-and-beverage vendors who’ll be on site, including Nile Valley Juice and vegan food, Mazie’s healthy soul food, Joe the Art of Coffee, and … (Grub Street is excited about this one) Filipino brunch pop-up Maharlika! We just got off the phone with Maharlika’s Nicole Ponseca, who gave us a few details about the upcoming café and “Asian bodega” she’ll open there.

Unlike the Maharlika pop-up, which only serves on weekends — and good news there, the brunch eatery is slated to keep operating indefinitely, rather than close at the end of the month — the DeKalb location will serve breakfast, lunch, and early dinner daily, including casual to-go offerings like coffee and Filipino pastries. The design is still being finalized, but there will likely be some counter seating. And, says Ponseca, because “from what I understand, you can’t even get any fresh produce in that area,” she plans to have a retail space in front offering fruit and veggies plus some Asian condiments. All of this will be a huge boon to nearby Rambo, which, as you’ll recall, recently lost its only restaurant. And in other lucky-neighborhood news: New York Street Food reports that the Gourmet Food Truck Bazaar at the Hell’s Kitchen flea market will not only return March 20, but will operate monthly after that. So now you really won’t have to schlep to Jersey to get your Krave Korean tacos!
