Intersection of Rtes. 9G and 199
Red Hook, NY
You know it’s spring when this delightful, tiny trailer first appears along the side of the road, offering tasty eats throughout the summer. Then, when autumn comes, the owners close up and head down to Mexico, where they run a café in the winter. Bubby’s menu is vegetarian and it’s not extensive — just a couple of types of burritos and quesadillas, and a refreshing agues de frutas, or “fruit water” drink. Simple, yes — but here’s a definite case of “less is more,” with fresh, delicious ingredients cooked to order. Loyal customers stop by year after year, sometimes plopping down on the grass for an impromptu picnic; there’s also a farmstand nearby to pick up some fresh fruit for dessert.
