  1. El Pulgarcito De America has good pupusas.
    3133 Fulton St, under the Norwood Ave stop of the J/Z.

    1. Coal Pot on Atlantic Ave and Alabama has great curry goat, jerk chicken and fried pork chops. Saratoga Country Kitchen on Atlantic Ave. and Saratoga has great soul food. Fish & Wings has delicious take-out. Especially their macs & cheese.

      1. Thanks for this - I'm very interested in the East New York recommendations.

          I was intrigued by the mention of a Nigerian place. Here's the details:

          FESTAC GRILL...

            This place is properly good. Dig up my ancient post on it for details. The walk from the subway is hilariously "interesting" if you do it after dark. I was actually laughing at how much noticeable the gang presence was.

            Some insanely good peppa loaded goat stuff there though. And Guinness!

        2. this past summer i remember i had a decent roti at a place under the cleveland st el subway station.
