From time to time, when I'm bored with my usual tnt repertoire of recipes, and I'm not in the mood for experimenting with new ones, I will put together a take out meal, and supplement it with some of my own dishes.
Rather than shopping in any one take-out store in Brooklyn, I will go from store to store, and choose from the food items that I feel that each does best:
Gourmet on J - Deli Roll, Grilled portobello mushrooms, grilled vegetables, kibbe, roasted potatoes, chicken francaise, peach souffle, chunky chopped liver, noodles and cabbage, deli rolls, pareve noodle cheese kugel, cole slaw
Jerusalem Steakhouse on Avenue J - marinated chicken, babaganouj, Israeli Salad, Humous, potato salad
Flatbush Kosher (on Coney Island Ave, bet. J & K) - chicken soup, apple kugel, rice kugel
Chap-a-Nosh on Elm Ave. - stuffed capons
Meal Mart on Avenue M - shnitzel
Meisner's on Avenue M - potato kugel
I may not be the best cook [although I've been told I'm pretty good :) ], but I do have a reputation for putting together a take-out meal second to none.
For even more variety, I'd love some other recommendations of specialties that you enjoy from these or other restaurants or take-out places in Flatbush, or Boro Park Brooklyn. Thanks very much!
