I took the bus down to Bed-Stuy looking for some Caribbean food. I went to Ali’s Trinidad Roti Shop and got a Doubles (fried flat bread filled with curried chickpeas $1.25), Salmon Pie ($1.50) and Irish Sea Moss drink ($4).
The Doubles was good, but not as good as De Hot Pot, where they put some other sauces on it (I think).
The Salmon Pie was interesting. I don’t know what I was expecting. But it was like fried dough with a pocket of salmon filling.
The Irish Sea Moss drink was really good, although I didn’t expect it to taste like a vanilla milkshake. It’s supposedly good for sexual virility and for making babies. Then I realized, why am I drinking this? I don’t want to make babies right now.
I was thinking of walking around and getting a roti somewhere else, but I was already full. That’s the problem with going on a food adventure by yourself. You buy like an empanada and then you’re full. I think I need a girlfriend …to help me eat food and to make babies with.
