      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.

            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!
