You can never go wrong in Little Caribbean with roti, and you’re in good hands at the second location of Jen’s Roti Shop on Church Ave. Roti is one of my favorite foods, and my preference is always goat buss up shut, a.k.a. paratha with pumpkin and potatoes, but I’d also recommend Jen’s tasty aloo pies. By now you might be noticing a trend here, so let’s not forget the sauces like tamarind, cucumber chutney, and pepper. On one of our recent tours of Little Caribbean with Ladies who Meat, a favorite was stewed chicken feet and my fitness trainer, Marlon Jude, raves about their pelau, a one pot dish with rice, pigeon peas, and chicken or beef.
