Caribbean restaurant recommendation - must have roti
- Kosmonaut Oct 27, 2006 08:10 PM
Are there any Caribbean restaurants in LA that serve roti?
Are you talking about roti, as in the South east asian style of flat bread?
There is roti served at the Indosnesian stand at the Old Farmer's market, and roti canai at Kuala Lumpur in Pasadena.

i ate here once. the roti was not crispy in the asian style. i have no idea what the "caribbean style" is.
i had the roti wrapped around goat curry. the curry was tasty but had little goat bones that could be dangerous if you eat fast..
i've tried to go to natraliart a couple times but theyre always closed when i go at night.

Roti at Carib Treehouse was deliriously good (tender, rich) one time I had it "bus' up shut" style, but abominably tough more recently. Not sure what "crispy in the asian style" means, it's pretty similar to roti canai I've had in Malaysia.
My Trini coworker says the roti is good at Caricom, which is supposedly just down the street from Carib Treehouse.
