Dekalb Market Hall

New York is full of great places to eat, and it’s no surprise this food hall was one of m favorite food halls I’ve visited. I visited around the time they first opened in 2017 , so they have since expanded with many more vendors. I was pregnant with my first child at the time, so the NYC food trip was my idea of the perfect “babymoon”. Hopefully I can come back again to Dekalb Market Hall soon, this time with my kids, to try some of the new vendors.

What I Ate there

Pierogi Boys

Delicious traditional pierogies. You get a choice between potato & cheese (topped with sour cream and caramelized onions), sauerkraut & mushrooms (topped with mushroom gravy), or the meat pierogi (topped with meat gravy). You can also get the sampler and try all three (which was what I did). We got there early in the morning and got to watch the pierogies being handmade. On top of the great food, everyone working there was nice and friendly. It was the perfect start to our morning.

Cuzin's Duzin

Yum…freshly made donuts. These were so good. I couldn’t leave without stopping by to pick up a couple of these. There’s always room for donuts.  Their light and fluffy texture makes these so addicting. I was pregnant at the time, so I didn’t get to try the donuts for “grownups”, which the flavors come in Hennessey, pink Moscato, and coquito. The  current flavors are: Funnel Cake Powdered, Cinnamon Churro, Crazy Glazey, Caramel, Chocolate
Fruity Pebbles, Cinnamon Toast
S’mores Nutella, Mama Joyce Maple.

Hard Times Sundaes

Does this picture make you wanna eat a burger? This was one of the best burgers I’ve had. Juicy patty, melted cheddar, bacon, and caramelized onions.  Oh, and the toasted bun was perfect. I’ve had many great burgers in my lifetime and this one was definitely memorable. Every ingredient was done right.

Wilma Jean Fried Chicken

I got the chicken on a stick was delicious. It was crispy, flavorful and juicy. Nothing to complain about here! This is a favorite among many who visited and also considered one of NYC’s top places for fried chicken. I wish I got to try other items on the menu, but I was stuffed. I am sad to discover that they have since closed their doors for unknown reasons.


These were decent. I’ve had better Korean fried chicken. If I were to come back, I would probably get another item on the menu, instead of the buns. I’ve heard that their original location is better. 

Gus' Pickles

They definitely know how to do their pickles right.Crispy and the perfect amount of  sour and salty. I got myself jar of the hot and spicy pickles. They’re great in sandwhiches, but I especially love snacking on them by themselves.
