I moved to Kensington a few months ago from Carroll Gardens, where I was very spoiled by the abundance of restaurants, bars and food stores.
So far here I frequent both Picket Fence and the Farm on Adderley, which are awesome, and I like the Mexican place on Cortelyou near the fire house. I've also tried a couple of the Middle Eastern places along Coney Island Ave., unfortunately I don't remember their names -- one is on a corner across the street from KFC and stays open 24 hours. Vox Pop is good for coffee or beer and the atmosphere, though I wasn't too impressed with the food.
Does anyone have more recommendations for places to eat in this neighborhood? A good Chinese takeout place would be very helpful, as well as your favorite grocery stores (I shop either at the Flatbush Food Coop, the new natural food store, a little Polish grocery on Church ave. and the big 24-hour international market, also on Church), and a good Mexican place. And it looks like there are not many bars, save the little Irish place Shenanigans and the Old Brick Cafe on Church (haven't tried the latter). Are there any Polish restaurants?
Thank you in advance,
