Hey chowhound Outer Boroughs, I`ve lived in Minneapolis for the majority of my life and in about a week I'm moving to Bushwick (Wyckoff and DeKalb) and I'm getting super hyped on the food scene in New York. Bushwick seems to be a black hole in food, other than Puerto Rican and Mexican, but I am willing to go out of the way for some place special.
I'm wondering if there are any recommendations for places I would not otherwise be able to find. I've searched all over yelp and chowhound and there are some obvious places, (within the first week I'm definately heading to Flushing), but other places? I'm looking for cheap on the order of 3-7 dollars for a meal. Dives/hole in the wall type places would be great. Cheaper the better.
We have a fair amount of: Veitnamese, Thai, Sushi, German, Scandinavian (my family), Ethiopian, Middle Eastern, and Mexican.
We don't have much in the way of: Korean, Malay, Japanese (non sushi), Indian, African (other than Ethiopian), East European, Southern, Chinese (broad, I know), Spainish (Basque especially), and pretty much any other types of cusines.
Any places I have to try? Specific dishes? Personal favorites? Ultra cheap?
Any suggestions would be awesome and much appreciated.
