This counter-service spot on Nostrand Ave is our favorite place to eat Trinidadian food in the city. The doubles, aloo pie, and roti filled with things like curry goat or chicken are all solid options, but if you’re really hungry, get the oxtail dinner - it comes with a side of plantains, rice, and peas and it’ll leave you feeling full for the rest of the week. It’s difficult to spend more than $12 on food here, so this is an affordable dinner option that you can actually be excited about.
