Best Roti in an Unexpected Place (2008)

Terry's Gourmet Deli

Once a week, do what I do. Go to TERRY'S GOURMET DELI and ask the jovial counter guys (who hail from Trinidad) to make a chicken roti with two spoonfuls of the excellent homemade Scotch Bonnet hot sauce. I carry mine surreptitiously into the Union Square Cinema and pick a movie, the badder the better. I wash it down with club soda, then emerge two hours later a new man. Better than a visit to the shrink.
