In this city, restaurants come and go faster than you can say "ethically sourced ramen burger." And even though there are great new additions to the culinary landscape popping up every week, you've gotta give kudos to anyone who can stick it out for over a year. With that in mind, we bring you Still Got It, our tribute to establishments that continue to serve mouthwatering meals and drinks long after the buzz has faded—or where the lingering hype is still justified.

We're living through trying times at the moment, and while it can be helpful to get some warmth from the good things that happen in the world, you also need actual nourishment. Everyone's got a different definition of comfort food, but if you're talking to me, I will tell you to head to the corner of Sterling Place and Nostrand Avenue, walk into Gloria's and get yourself a plate of curry goat. Oh and a double, for sure get a double (fried flatbread full of curried chickpeas). Oh and, also make sure to get some extra pepper sauce for just .25 cents, so you can heat things up all good and proper.021917glorias1.jpg

Gloria's has more than just curry goat of course, since man can't live on goat alone. You can get a variety of roti, and other Caribbean and Trinidadian specialties like stewed oxtail, curry shrimp, curry conch and ital (a vegan dish developed by Rastafarians meant to increase "the life energy believed to be within all living beings"), not to mention drinks like sorrel and peanut punch. The platters of the meals come in two sizes and come with two sides in addition to your main course (the small one will easily feed two people), and range in price from $9 to $14. But, I have come here to praise the curry goat with a side of pumpkin and fried plantains, all of which can be yours for the extremely reasonable price of $12.50.

A big tin foil-housed platter of the goat, pumpkin and plantains, plus a healthy helping of rice and peas, is just a solid meal. What else do you need sometimes in life, other than a really solid meal? You don't HAVE to get pumpkin and plantains as your sides, but I think the sweetness of the pumpkin and the firmness and fried flavor of the plantains complement each other and the rice and peas. As for the goat, the meat slides off the bones easily enough that you shouldn't find yourself needing to pull chunks off with your fingers to get the soft chewy goodness from the plate into your mouth. And even if you do need to do that, whatever, manners are overrated.

Gloria's does have a couple tables to sit at (and free wi-fi if you want to Instagram your meal without wasting data), but the food can be taken to-go so easily you may as well wander. If you don't live nearby and it's a nice day, you're just a short walk from Eastern Parkway, where you can chow down and make people walking past you on the pedestrian path jealous of your meal. Of course, if someone asks where you got the food, point them to Gloria's. Everyone can use some comfort food these days.

Gloria's is located at 764 Nostrand Avenue, on the corner of Sterling Pl, in Crown Heights (718-773-3476).
