Flatbush Hounds

I have seen postings here and there about what's currently good in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Jim Leff last year posted that the babka in the Jewish bakery on Coney Island between J & K, next to the Orchard, is good. Surely he's talking about Chiffon Bake Shoppe?

We all know that right here in Flatbush resides the houndy-famous DiFara pizza on Avenue J (but we also all know that is not kosher).

So, I would like to start a thread:

What is the Best of Flatbush, according to the hounds? And I mean the Best. If you try to say the chicken at Meal Mart, please think again. This is for the best, not the typical.

My offerings:

Challah at Ostrovitsky's on J (and 13th?) This is the only good store-bought challah I have found in the neighborhood.

Pizza Time pizza, also on J. Thin crust.

Famous Pita on Coney Island and D. Good value for the buck, and they allow you to refill your salad plate. You can refill on soda, too.

Kosher Free Range chicken (imported from Canada) at Pick-n-Pay on Avenue M. They haven't had it for 2 weeks though!

Cinnamon Rolls and chocolate rugalach are so close to Jerusalem bakery be found in Boro Park, on 13th Avenue. called something like ..."heimishe bakery"....towards the lower numbers of the strip.

Pita Corner/Pita "Pinah" at Avenue P and 2nd or 3rd street. Very good shwarma and excellent shnitzel.

Pita Sababa on King's Highway and 4th street for fresh pitas. Also sell mini pitas with za'atar.

Any other true Flatbush hounds out there?
