There's no better roti to be had in downtown Brooklyn than the rendition at Justin's, whether stuffed with oxtail, shrimp, or goat, further amplified by the curried potato-and-chickpea mixture that identifies this as a Guyanese and Trinidadian spot. Less typical stuffings like duck and salt cod are also sporadically available, along with other island delights like "cook-up" (a fried-rice farrago of rice, black-eyed peas, and smoked beef), philourie (fried dumplings in a thin tamarind sauce), and bakes-codfish sandwiches.
