Brooklyn outing #1: Kombit (Haitian in Prospect Heights)

JackS | Jul 14, 2004 01:07 PM

OK, so we went there because the Times reviewed it and we were intrigued.

We shared a salad, which was alright, not spectacular; lightly-vinegared combo of corn, beets, lettuce, etc. Another appetizer was a combination of fried yam-type things, which were OK, but were better with a very spicy kind of cole slaw that they also provided.

My main course was grillot, grilled pork, sort of like chicarrones in Salvadoran food. It was quite good, particularly with the spicy sauce that we had. There was also a side of green plaintains that were fine. Other people at the table got limbi, a conch dish in a tomato sauce, which was OK, and red snapper. I'm not a fish person, but the people at the table who are say that it was quite good.

Overall, I'd give it about a B. Not mind-blowingly good, but decent.

Kombit is on Flatbush Avenue between Prospect Place and St. Marks.
