Cook Out NYC 2012 : Kimchi, Food, Beer & Music #cookoutnyc

Today we headed over to Governors Island to check out Cook Out NYC's two-day "all grill" event taking place this weekend July 7th-8th from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (both days).

Cook Out NYC' is considered one of the ultimate outdoor cooking and country fair event offering BBQ and grilling stations food sampling, custom beers sampling by Sixpoint, on stage blues/bluegrass/Americana and even a spicy Kimchi eating contest.

How was the food? So yummy!

While the majority of the food was hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken, etc. Each booth had their own special way of preparing. We enjoyed a wide range of flavors and food combinations.

Along with the food, I was able to sample some of the Sixpoint beers. The beer girls were awesome and helped me pick beers to sample and enjoy with the foods.

I also checked out Mama O's Premium Kimchi booth and cooking demos. Besides have a son who's half Korean, I have many Korean friends and LOVE kimchi.

Mama O demoed traditional Korean foods like Kimchi pancakes, Kimchi rice and Kimchi tacos. All of which I was happy to taste test. Repeatedly. LOL

At the Mama O's Premium Kimchi tent, you could also sample different style of Kimchi and sign up for the Kimchi eat contest. For those that never had Kimchi, it can be really hot and spicy so the winner of that contest has my full respect!

We soon had to take a seat in the shade and let our food digest. While relaxing we enjoyed watching an English folk dance from a group of guy with bells on. Check out my video below to see them dancing



Enjoying food, beer and music. I'd say that was a great way to spend a Saturday! There's one more day left so make sure to head over to Governors Island to check out Cook Out NYC.

  1. I love summer food fairs. I've never seen kimchi at one, though. I'm not one for hot stuff so I'm not a big fan of kimchi. I'm probably one of the few Asians who don't like to eat hot spicy stuff, ha ha.

  2. There's so much going on on Governor's Island now. I remember when it was pretty much deserted.
