      we went to roti plus last night. they were out of the goat roti, so we each got chicken, and i thought it was delicious and a steal at $6 for an enormous portion. but i haven't had roti in a while, so not much to compare it with.

      Sunshine Kitchen on St. Nicholas and 145 generally has goat roti, but they have no seating. Food Hut on Amsterdam just south of 145 makes a pretty good one, but they are often out of things as well.

        Just to add...all of those are great suggestions. I've heard that Roti Plus probably makes the best roti in Harlem (I think there might be a thread on here somewhere about it.) I'll add People's Choice at 145th and 9th Avenue (across from Pathmark and next to brand new glass building) and there is a fantastic Jamaican spot across from where No Pork on my Fork was on 7th Avenue off of 125th Street. Honestly, the best Jamaican food is in the Northeast Bronx.
