Indigenous Industry Of Carnival Junk Food
The memory of rich whiffs that emanated throughout the 40’s & 50’s….
…warm waffles from Maxie’s; potato knishes at Shatzkin’s; walkaway sundaes; pango pops; cups of fizzy,and just-mixed sarsaparilla.
To present food stands laden with hand-painted signs and neon…
…their fried brown and yellowy foods lined up beneath heating lamps, and while most items don’t look appetizing that hardly seems to matter; people enthusiastically dig in.
...Puerto Rican mamis hawk homemade empanadas, and Mexican girls spear mangoes with sticks, dousing them with chili powder and lime.
