Justin's Trini and Guyanese - Fulton Mall area

I love this place for roti. It is on Leonard (or some L man's name) between Willioughby and Fulton. I have tried the goat and jerk chicken rotis. The roti skins are great - flaky, thick. The meats spicy. I put their homemade hot sauce on it to make it sing even more. I believe they offer delivery but have never ordered. For those of us living in Brownstone Brooklyn, I find it easier (and more pleasant) to get to than some of the Nostrand /Church avenue places. Heard about it via Sietsema - Village Voice.

I think the rotis are $6 and $6.50. The next time I go I am trying their curry duck.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

      I used to go there 1-2 times a week for lunch. However, now that I suck it up and buy monthly MetroCards, I now head out to Bed Stuy to grab one at Ali's (and also a doubles from A&A).

      That said, Justin's is very good for the location, and is certainly good in a pinch. When the pholourie is fresh, you got to get some of that. The T&T lime rickey soda is good, too, but I wish they sold Peardrax.

          It also gets a shout-out in a great Masta Ace song,"Brooklyn Masala":

          We settled on dinner for two at Justin's
          The food was good, with no surprises
          we had the barbeque shrimps as appetizers
          We had the catfish main course, a few drinks ...
          then out the front door like Main Source
