A Taste of Guyana in Brooklyn Neighborhood
Posted May 15, 2018 5:19 p.m. EDT
NEW YORK — Hubert Urling was an entrepreneur in Georgetown, the capital of Guyana, for decades. His sons are now in charge of the restaurant that bears their father’s nickname, German’s Restaurant, and they are building on the continued popularity of this steward of Guyanese food. Two of them, Clinton and Hubert Jr., are opening a shop in Brooklyn called German’s Soup. In a part of East Flatbush with many Guyanese, they are serving family-style creole fare, including thick signature soups made with beef, chicken or, for the nose-to-tail aficionado, cow heel. Dark, vibrant and succulent beef pepperpot; cookup rice with meats and herbs in coconut milk; and chicken curry are some other specialties. The corner storefront has 16 seats, but it’s mostly for takeout and delivery: German’s Soup, 793 Utica Ave. (Linden Boulevard), East Flatbush, Brooklyn, 718-513-0376, germanssoup.com.
