Cititour Review:

Not all Golden Krusts are created equal.  This one on Nostrand Avenue in a rapidly gentrifying part of Bed-Stuy stands out for some of its flavorful combos.   My personal favorite is the braised oxtail stew.  The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender, served in a spicy sauce with fried plaintains and rice & beans.  The jerk chicken is also good, but a tad on the dry side.  You will also find jerk fish, curried goat and Jamaican-style patties in flavors like beef, spinach and chicken.  Get them sandwiched between two thick slices of coconut bread for the full effect.
