Enter Roti Plus and you'll leave bustling 125th Street behind you for a tropical island. The narrow dining room is decorated with bright Caribbean art while soca and calypso music fill the air; in the back, a mock thatch-roofed hut's the place for take-out orders. Roti, Trinidad's answer to the tortilla or the now-ubiquitous wrap, is the specialty of the house. The cooks in Roti Plus's kitchen make theirs enormous, and then pack them to the brim: Curry vegetable roti bursts with potatoes, cabbage, carrots, and chick peas; goat roti is stuffed with tender chunks of meat. Other entrées are available for the roti-sated; the stewed salt fish—shredded salt cod and green bananas in a tomato-onion sauce—is compelling. All main courses come with three flavorful, typical sides like callaloo (stewed greens with okra), rice and pigeon peas, and coo coo (baked cornmeal). Even the homemade juices reflect island tastes. Sorrel juice, made from hibiscus greens, is refreshingly tart, while the ginger beer is strong enough to blast your sinuses clear for days.
