Trinidadian Roti and Pastille
- Carol Martin
I am looking for St. James quality Trinidadian roti (especially with mango) and the Trinidadian holiday food, pastille, in Manhattan. Has anyone come across these foods?
This weekend is the West Indian day parade in Brooklyn. I assume that you were planning on attending! Street vendors are bound to carry what you're looking for.
Also, the neighborhood of Crown Heights is home to a large Trinidadian community. There are roti shops up and down Nostrand Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway. To get there, take the 3 train to Nostrand Avenue and walk north on Nostrand, against traffic.
