Danforth Roti Shop ~ 2844 Danforth Ave ~ (416) 690-1308

If you are looking for T&T food in Toronto’s east-end, Danforth Roti Shop is the spot. The hand-drawn menu focuses on the classics: doubles, polourie, saheena and mauby (my personal favourite to wash everything down). Be sure to ask for condiments, hot sauces and chutney, as they’re hidden away in the back and aren’t to…

Drupati’s ~ 2038 Yonge St ~ (416) 487-7684

With 6 locations across the GTA, Drupati’s has been cooking-up some of the city’s finest Trinidadian cuisine for the past 20 Years. Needless to say, I was more than pleased when they opened their Yonge & Davisville location last summer… right in the heart of my old stomping grounds. Hey, look… there’s Dan Wong about to…

And though the name might be reminiscent of the John Candy classic, the food is far from anything Canadiana. “So, you like taking pictures?” the lady at the…

Caribbean Queen of Patties – 1279 Bloor St W – (416) 538-1732

On the corner of Lansdowne and Bloor lies the Caribbean Queen of Patties, and, for argument’s sake, they happen to have the best Beef Patties in town. Made fresh-and-often daily, $1.50 gets you one heck of a snack; $12 gets you an even ten. If you’re peckish and happen to find yourself in that neck…

Barb’s Roti Shop – 1181 Lakeshore Rd E. (416) 278-4713

Barb’s Roti Shop has been around since 1981, and I can’t believe it’s taken me 30 years to find it. A tiny takeout joint tucked away on Lakeshore Road, just west of Long Branch, this has got to be the food find of the year… for 2 reasons… First off, Barb makes an absolutely incredible…
