Sorry that it's taken me so long to report -- I've been
away for a week:

I love Kadel's. Excellent caribbean soul food takeout,
fish and fowl only (at least, no beef). I especially
love the barbequed chicken which comes in a thick red
sauce that I can't get enough of (can someone identify
the ingredients?). Entrees come with two sides (rice
and beans, collard greens, plantains, macaroni and
cheese, black-eyed peas, etc.), and are cheap, cheap,
cheap. It's mainly a takeout place, although at night
they set up tables, and you can sit at the window on a
porch swing and gaze out at the hospital. Very

Unfortunately, for all my rhapsodizing, my boyfriend
(we live together and thus share most all meals
together) refuses to eat there because the food is too
rich for him. So I rarely have the opportunity to
indulge. And, alas, although I love Fort Greene,
circumstances conspire to prevent me from remaining
there for long. I would absolutely recommend Kadel's
to anyone in the neighborhood. I haven't tried most of
their dishes, but what I have had has been excellent.

If only I had infinite appetite and could eat dinner
twice in one night (once at Kadel's and then later at
with Tim).
