Bajan Café

456 Schenectady Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11203 | Brooklyn | 718-221-2070

Location Description:

"Bajan" is what Barbados islanders like to be called, and this one-table café is the perfect showcase for their playful and delectable cuisine, which combines African and English elements. A centerpiece on the menu is flying fish and cou-couaan okra-laced cornmeal porridge with an African savor topped with real flying fish fillets (which look and taste something like trout). The jerk pork-a dish swiped from Jamaica-is desirable too, and somewhat rare in Brooklyn, and the repertoire also includes salt-cod stew, brown stew chicken, fried kingfish, and a variety of pastries with hilarious names, including "lead pipe."
