Smorgasburg takes its talents to Santa Monica beach again this coming weekend with a one-day popup on Santa Monica pier from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. Along with its usual complement of vendors like Big Mozz, Katsu Sando, Little Llama Peruvian Tacos, and Shrimp Daddy, a bunch of big names will make it out to the Westside, like Moo’s Craft Barbecue (which drew massive lines during its summer popup at Smorgasburg), Poncho’s Tlayudas (perhaps the farthest west this South LA street food spot has come), NYC’s Burger Supreme, and Earle’s Hot Dogs from South LA.
In addition, Tacos 1986, a new Tijuana-style carne asada taco spot that cooks over live fire and makes tortillas to order, will come to Santa Monica pier, as well as Christina Tosi’s ever-popular Milk Bar. With cool temperatures and sunny skies on the forecast, this year’s Santa Monica Smorgasburg popup should be a nice change of pace from last year’s event, which featured rain. Despite the weather, tens of thousands of people still went out to the pier to try what could be LA’s premier collection of street vendors and eateries.
