Best Trinidadian


Favorite Bed-Stuy pit stop Ali’s Roti Shop specializes in the flatbread sandwiches pioneered by Bengali field workers who arrived in Trinidad to harvest cane early in the 20th century. The flatbread in question is dal roti, with crushed yellow split peas between its flaky layers, and the fillings run from chicken, bone-in goat, shrimp, and conch. Ali’s has been on Fulton Street for 25 years, and the original proprietor has become something of a celebrity back in Trinidad as a result. 1267 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, 718-783-0316 (11216)
