Fat Food Quest
An odd query but I'm starting a diet which requires me to consume an excessive amount of fat on the first two days of my regiment and I would love help in finding the fattiest flavorfilled foods in the brooklyn borough.
Today is the first day of the Chub Load and I have intentions of taking full advantage of this odd requirement by attempting to eat all sorts of blubbery bizness.
The obvious includes: burgers, fried chicken, doughnuts, french fries, milkshake but I am looking for more delicious and utterly indulgent suggestions. Ramen? Pork Belly? Cassoulet
Right now I'm heading to Traif for bacon doughnuts and hopefully something else offering porcine pudgery.
Greasy pudgy fingers crossed...
I'll be posting in the manhattan board as well so feel free to add your advice there if you'd be so kind.

First thing that comes to mind are the lamb fat kababs at Cheburechnaya. It's crispy, fatty, and lamb-y, all at the same time. The original shop is in Rego Park, Queens, but they have a branch in Coney Island as well.

That's absolute genius... fattiest foods possible for two days? Love it. I wanna go on that diet! Oh wait, I'm on that diet seven days a week... but it's funny, I'm not really getting any lighter or buffer. WTF? ;)
For pure fat, you might go for a nice Filipino adobo with lots of pork fat and skin. Both Ihawan locations are good if you don't mind the trek to Queens, but I'm sure that somebody here could recommend a similarly good place in Brooklyn.
There are also some great, oily West African dishes out there. Maima's in Jamaica or Abidjan in Bushwick would work... maybe try the peanut/groundnut dish with beef at Abidjan, or the palm butter at Maima's.
I haven't spent enough time in Crown Heights yet, but I have a feeling that you might be able to find Grenadan or Trinidadian-style oil down there somewhere--it's a bunch of meat and sometimes veggies or breadfruit, stewed in coconut milk until only the oil is left. Pretty fatty stuff, usually.
