Krik Krak - 101/Amsterdam

I can no longer find the thread about this neighborhood, but wanted to recommend Krik Krak, a tiny Haitian restaurant on 101/Amsterdam. We tried it for the first time last night and it was very yummy. The handwritten menu lists single word dishes (i.e., poulet, ecrevisses, griot (crunchy pork)) in French/Creole - each dish comes with rice and beans and big crunchy ungreasy plaintain slices.. I had the lambi (conch) - it came in a delicious red oniony sauce and was top notch. My boyfriend had the chicken, in a spicier brown sauce, also yummy. You get an enormous amount of food for $9-$11 and the people who run it could not be sweeter or more helpful in explaining the menu. There are a few little tables and a counter, but the owner mentioned that he is planning to start delivery soon, which will be welcome come winter!
