It's a Good One: Experimental Trinidadian Deep-Frying
"This is something new we're experimenting with," the woman behind the counter at Ram's told us, handing over a neat, golden-fried package. "You'll be my guinea pigs."
And we were happy ones, because this house-made pakora of sorts was crisp and flaky and filled with curry goodness, like potatoes, beans, and carrots. Of course, there's also very good roti here, and now, they're also frying up fish from Famous Fish Market on 145th and Saint Nicholas. The owner liked the fish up there, so she made a deal to buy it and the batter and bring a little Harlem fish and chips to Sunset Park. Smart woman.
