A venerable institution and sister to Brooklyn’s Island Express, Sybil’s is named after the family matriarch who started selling baked goods out of a car in the 1970s and is one of the places that all Guyanese visit when they come to New York. Like Allan’s in Flatbush, you can expect a very long line on weekends. But don’t worry, a greeter will quickly welcome you with a number like you’re at a butcher shop, which will give you time to wander around and make selections from the very extensive menu. The recommendations here are pine tarts, chicken patties, and pepper pot, Guyana’s national dish, which is a savory meat stewed with cassareep, an aromatic syrup prepared with bitter cassava and spices traditionally served during holidays with freshly baked plait bread.
