The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Eating Along the Q - Prospect Park Station
Glad to see the Daily News segment "Eating Along the Q" has finally pulled into the Prospect Park Station. After yours truly figured way too heavily in the last chapter, I was glad to just read and generally agree with the findings, though of course lots of joints were left out. Mentioned, as they MUST in any food story about the area, were the fantabulous "doubles" at De Hot Pot, and the one-of-a-kind vegan ice cream at Scoops (Tony Fongyit, Scoops' owner pictured below). The Q has indulged Scoops' soy-based icy sweets and can attest to their yum quotient, but it's his hot to-go food that really sparks the stars on the Yelp dot com. And speaking of the Yelp, check out the reviews for De Hot Pot. People LOVE this place, and if you haven't been, well, time's a wastin'.
