Slim pickins in Crown Heights

I've been taking a weekend class at Medgar Evers (on Crown & Nostrand, sometimes on Crown/Bedford) and have had the WORST food while visiting the campus. One day I went to a small West Indian restaurant on Rogers and ordered something very basic - rice & peas with jerk chicken. I've ate at my fair share of hole-in-the-wall places, but this was one of the worst - the chicken was not well-cleaned and had bits of hair and feather on it! Disgusting! The next day I went to some pizza/chicken joint and ordered french friends--they took fries out of the bin and threw them back into the grease for another minute or two because they were old. I've got another four weeks of classes and want to find someplace clean, cheap and tasty. I'd be even more stoked to find a place with roti. Anyone have suggestions?
