A roti is a flatbread, and at Ali’s you can one wrapped around your choice of meat. Chicken, goat, oxtail, beef - there are a lot of options. And if you want something smaller, get some doubles. They’re a Trinidadian specialty, and they’re essentially little chickpea sandwiches (with tamarind sauce). Get them spicy with ample amounts of tamarind sauce, and expect to get your hands dirty. Just be aware that this is mainly a takeout place, and it’s cash only.
