  • Saturday from 11-18 clock gibts here delicious food. The most famous Foddmarkt of the city with stunning views of Manhattan. Of course you've got delicious burgers (E.g. the Lobsterburger)! But also Asian, Italian and much more. With also the Kotti, original Berlin döner. Was a German who here shows the typical Berliner Doner New Yorkers and visitors from around the world real. Is everything not that cheap. Especially tasty the hand-cut fries with different Saußen for $8 from home frite from Brooklyn. I thought you are in Brussels by the Maison Antoine are the best. Here were at least equivalent. Prices tumbled some stalls at 17:30. So I had the whole grilled squid for $5. Great food market. It comes with people from all over the world quickly in the conversation.

  • Stand with food from all over the world and young clientele. Not all excelled but the view of Manhattan is worth the trip.

  • Smorgasburg offers a high variety in food & drink choices, but be prepared for a huge crowd of people and very long lines for pretty much every stand. Some of the stands seem a tad expensive, others are reasonably priced for the value you get. The venue is located directly at East River, presenting you with a nice view over Manhattan.
  • There are a lot of food vendors here, make sure you walk around first before you decide. They serve alcohol here but you can only stay in the designated area and can't walk out with it. It's fun for two people or group. Free entry
  • *2016 Review* This is my third time visiting Smorgasburg in Williamsburg and I definitely remember it being better the other two times. I like to come each year to check out the new vendors and re-visit ones I liked (aka ramen burger). This year, I skipped the ramen burger but here is what I tried: 2nd City Beef - (2 stars) - these are "Italian beef sandwiches". I use quotes because all add-ons are extra, including the sweet/hot peppers, which is one of the main components of an Italian beef sammie. So it's not really an Italian beef sammie. It's basically a plain beef sammie dipped in meat juices. I added provolone, which didn't really help the old beef taste. Kimchi Smoke - (2 stars) - we got the Cholander fries (added bulgogi). This is fries with kimchi, cheese, green onions, and this spicy ketchup. The bulgogi was basically dried bits of beef and there wasn't a lot of it. The spicy ketchup was this super vinegar-y concoction of what I think is ketchup and gochujang sauce. They could have used less of this because that was pretty much all I tasted. Carnal - (3 stars) - we went with the beef short rib. It has that super charred taste if you're into barbecue. But I think the best part of it was the tomato relish that was served on top of it. Prickly Pear Lemonade (4 stars) - can't remember which place this was from but it was one of the Latin stands. This was super refreshing and not overly sweet or tart like a lot of these lemonades tend to be. It's a little pricey at $4 but it was worth every penny on a 95 degree day. I still have yet to try East Coast Poke but I don't think I trust raw fish from a cooler on a sweltering day. Maybe next time!
  • So fun! Cash only but so many local vendors. Lines can get long but you can look around and find great food. Views are awesome if you eat on the water. :)
  • I've been meaning to go to smorgasburg for the longest time ever, and finally I did. There are so many options it's a food lover's paradise. This location is extremely crowded, and lines for some vendors are ridiculously long (I'm looking at you ramen burger!). The Smorgasburg that takes place on Sundays in Prospect Park is much less crowded with more space. It's also child friendly, and has a live band sometimes. This is a great opportunity to try something different, with so many cultures displaying their foods. Gooey & co is a stall that sells wonderful butter cakes which are to die for! The original flavor is so good and is my favorite, but the almond flavor and honey lavender are good choices too. Add a scoop of ice cream and ask them to add some lemon zest for free! Loved it. I managed to finally get my hands on a ramen burger. Although I like the concept, I don't believe it's worth the hype. It's interesting, but I think prefer a regular bun on my burger. The party was seasoned perfectly though. I'm glad I got to taste it, but it's not something I'd buy again. There's a stall called Kotti Berlin street food, and let me just say this is one of he best meals I've had! Get the Doner kebab, you won't regret it. It's absolutely amazing.
