West Indian Food in St. John's Nl

Anyone know where I can find good Trini/Guyanese food in St. John's? I am craving a good shrimp roti and if I was really lucky a few trini doubles. Or perhaps even somewhere that sells dalpuri and I can attempt to make my own. I definitely don't want to try to make the dalpuri roti myself!!

  1. I'm afraid you're quite out of luck finding Trini/Guyanese food in St. John's. Try Magic Wok possibly on Duckworth Street for roti ingredients.

    1. With the disclaimer that this is a cuisine that I know nothing about, have you tried the Toya International Market on Longs Hill/Lemarchant Road?

      1. I haven't tried it but I have heard this place mostly features African foods and I am afraid it would not resemble the real west indian deal that I am craving so bad. I have tried East Indian roti before and it didn't match up for me.

        1. ever found roti in st. john's? i want to buy about 100 or so because its just so hard to find!!!

            I wish!! What I wouldn't do for a good roti right now!! Wish I knew someone here who could whip up a few for me!

          2. I have yet to find anyone who makes/sells doubles in Halifax. I did however, find a vietnamese grocer who sells shadon beni, which totally made my day.
