From Shelly Kramer came this great comment, worthy of its own special post:
As someone who eats from restaurants on Flatbush Ave nearly every day here's my go to list.
Pride Bakery: Pumpkin Vegetable Soup (Friday Only). My husband is a big
fan of their beef patties & meat loaf (seasoned beef in a more
bread like dough, they don't have it regularly)
Blessings Herbs & Coffee: Egg, Avocado & Tomato Sandwich. Any/All salads
Caribbean Bakery: Veggie Patty, Callaloo (with or without Salt Fish)
with Ground Provisions (I usually ask them to take off the oil)
Tugboat: Simple Sally Sandwich
Fishy: Salmon Burger with Sweet Potato Fries (served with grilled
pineapple, onions, & tomato). Also have a great seamed fish &
Scoops: BBQ Chunk with whichever grain they have for the day & veggie side they're serving. They also have great soup.
De Hot Pot: Doubles, but my new favorite is their Vegetable Roti (Pumpkin, Potato & Chickpea Chana)
Tip of the Tongue: 3 Bean Chili, Chicken Salad on a Croissant, Spinach & Chickpea Salad
Family Pizza: Slice
Golden Krust: Stew Chicken or Ox-Tail, rice & peas (ox-tail gravy on rice & peas) with steamed cabbage,
Out of the neighborhood, but deliver here: Ghandi Indian, A.M. Thai
found via eating a lot of Caribbean food over the last nine years, in
this neighborhood, the Trini places season their food more consistently
than the Jamaican restaurants. So if you're a person who wants your food
to taste the same each time I'd stick to Scoops, De Hot Pot or Jus
Fishy. If you like a more peppery flavor Errol's is your place...as my
husband (native Yardie) says "they're heavy handed with the pepper"
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.
