  1. Singh's for doubles (118-06 Liberty). Sybil's for roti (132-17 Liberty). Great stuff.

      Singh's doubles are the best (ask for extra pepper sauce) but A&A's, a little closer to the train, aren't bad either.

      A little closer to manhattan, Ali's on fulton has decent doubles and rotis. There's also A&A bakes and doubles on nostrand just around the corner from fulton, but i have never made it to this location, as it seems to close v. early (3ish?)

      I am a huge doubles fan, so if you find any other good places, please post!

        Thank you both. I tried Singhs this morning (tasty). A&A had a line out the door, so just walked along Liberty Ave. Quite a variation of food along with an amazing ethnic mix of people.

    2. this is liberty ave in queens?

        Yes, Queens. By car I get off the Van Wyck and head west, tons of good places though Singh's is an old favorite of mine.

      2. anyone been to S&A Roti Shop in Jamaica, Queens? Passed by it today, it's on hillside avenue around 170th street. small shot but looks good; had various curry filling for their rotis, doubles, bussup shots, lots of goodies. its a trinidiadian place with the typical fusion food as well.

          Yes, I buy from them often. They are very, very good! It is a Trini/Guyanese place, so I guess they do fusion stuff, but the buss-up-shut (paratha roti) is out of this world. It tastes like you are eating butter and roti. They always make it hot and fresh for you, but if you don't pick it up when you say you will, they will give your order to someone else. CONS: They always make you wait like at least 5-10 minutes, as they are often understaffed. DOUBLES are soooo good. Phone ahead-it's faster..

        2. Sandy's Roti Shop (Trinidadian) on Liberty Avenue between 122nd and 121st makes the best doubles in the area and has been around forever. Ask for it with cucumber and tamarind chutney. For Guyanese Three Sisters under the A-train a few blocks from Lefferts is top notch.
