Dekalb Market, though on a much smaller scale than Smorgasburg, is yet another popular weekend destination for foodies. Each artisan purveyor occupies its own brightly colored shipping container (yes, shipping container) out of whose windows yummy foods are sold. I got the chance to stop by the market this Saturday – here’s what I sampled:
Vanilla milkshake: I can’t recall from where (bad, blogger. Bad!) but it wasn’t really phenomenal or anything so let’s move on.
Pork sliders from Bklyn Sliders: I assumed these were going to be more of a roasted and sliced juicy pork situation, but silly me should have known these were going to be mini burgers. However, silly Bklyn Sliders should have known that pork isn’t exactly ideal burger material; unless it’s very well seasoned, which it wasn’t. When pork is prepared this way, it kind of turns out bland. The meat was topped with a basil and truffle aioli. The sauce was good but I would have never guessed that there were any truffles or basil in it. The little sesame buns were the best part, which bring the final verdict of these sliders to okay.
Mini doughnuts from Cuzin’s Duzin: These baby doughnuts (not doughnut holes) were fried-to-order, which was awesome, and tossed in cinnamon sugar. These were a yummy treat but not the chewy, yeasty kind that I yearned for. They tasted more like the Entenmann’s cake doughnuts. But… I did eat my entire share, so I can’t say they were bad.
Although my first excursion to Dekalb Market wasn’t superb, I am definitely willing to give in another chance.
