Best Jamaican Coco Bread? (breakfast at Christie's)

Lambretta76 | Mar 6, 2003 12:20 PM

Now that my morning bagel has been replaced by the coco bread at Christie's Bakery on Flatbush in Park Slope, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a better version - if one exists. I've been to some of the places up on Gun Hill Road in the "Boogie Down" Bronx, but have yet to really explore Brooklyn's Jamaican eateries, save for Brawta, who makes a purely average coco bread.

And I'm not sure if it's a rather new offering, but Christie's has begun serving breakfast, although I haven't tried it yet. Looks to be fairly standard - ackee and salt fish, callaloo w/ fried dumplings, mackarel w/ green banana, and liver w/ yam and boiled dumpling, as well as some porridges.

Oh, and last but not least - I've discovered quite an amazing taste combo. Christie's coco bread with fig jam - it's absolutely perfect. Brings out the best in each without overshadowing any of the flavors. Perhaps a good cheddar would enhance this...
