Hot or Not?

Spicey Food Fan?

You know sometimes you just don’t feel like cooking or tasting your own hand at the pot?

Well, last week I was feeling that way when I stopped off at Angel’s Flake Patties at corner of Norstrand between Flatbush and Glenwood.

  • Really started off on the pastries as they are known for their Jamaican beef patty but ended up on the curry goat, rice and vegetables.
  • As I spooned one mix of rice and goat I felt the burning on my tongue… started sipping my beverage and commented ‘this thing real hot! boy’… but continued spoon after spoon until my plate was clean. You know something,  I am not really one to choose spicey foods fans but it tasted so good, and spicey!
  • Now listen to this.  After asking around and doing some research I found out that Spicey foods are really good for you, for seven (7)  reasons. Now talk about ‘holy’.


So, I decided to do my own research on this and have agreed to take a journey down Flatbush Avenue to all the places that sell Spicey Foods.

Come along with me if you can take the heat!

Just in case I cannot take the heat some people recommended sugar or eating an absorbent food like bread or rice rather than drinking liquids.

So, I will take these along with me.

Follow me on my journey to discover the spiciest Caribbean Foods in Flatbush…


My eyes will be popping out!
