A Spoonful of Sofrito: Freakin Rican Food Festivals!

A Spoonful of Sofrito: A pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.

Freakin Rican Food Festivals!


Sofrito Lovers,

Spring time is food time!  If you're foodie festival hunter like me, then you know that Spring is that delicious time of the year when food festivals dominate the weekend streets.

If you're looking for some delicious Puerto Rican fare, then you have to dine al fresco with the Freakin Rican-check out their website!

Chef Derick Lopez and his amazing partner Victor Vargas are the CEOs of the Freakin Rican Restaurant (brick and mortar coming soon), catering company, online culinary shop, and extraordinary hosts of the Freakin Rican Cooking Channel on YouTube.  These two Boricua Top Chefs (WEPA, Boricuas!) are as talented as they are sweet and welcoming.

As an avid fan and supporter, I highly recommend you visit the Freakin Rican kiosks at the following food festivals:


  1. MAY 27 ON 8TH AVE BETWEEN 42-50 ST (2 SPACES)
  2. MAY 29 STEINWAY ST ON BROADWAY BETWEEN Steinway and Crescent
  3. JUNE 04 ON 6TH AVE BETWEEN 34-42 ST
  4. JUNE 04 QUEENS PRIDE on 37th Road from 73rd to 77th Streets
  5. JUNE 11 FOREST HILLS ON AUSTIN ST from 69th to 72nd Road (2 SPACES)
  6. JUNE 17 ON 6TH AVE 42-54 ST
  7. JUNE 18 ON 6TH AVE 42-56 ST
  8. JUNE 18 ON 7TH AVE FLATBUSH on 7th Avenue from Flatbush to 16th Street (BK)


For summer dates, check out their festival calendar!


You'll love their delicious Arroz con Gandules (Rice with Green Pigeon Peas), Pollo Guisado (Puerto Rican style stewed chicken), and fried delicacies. Maybe, we'll run into each other!  Hit the streets and go taste for yourself!  ¡Buen Provecho!
