No matter the time, Trinidad Golden Place is probably going to have a line of people waiting for things like coconut rolls and raisin buns. Luckily the line at this Trinidadian bakery moves fast, so make sure to come prepared knowing what you want to order and with some cash in your pocket. Aside from some delicious doubles (spicy chickpeas wrapped in two layers of pastry dough) and a goat roti the size of an airplane squishy pillow, this place also serves a bunch of Chinese-American dishes like lo mein and fried rice.
