Yasmin joined me for a Caribbean food adventure this past weekend in Lefferts Gardens/Prospect Heights. The B43 bus dropped us off near De Hot Pot …and holy mang! I’m glad they did. Festive music blaring out the store. A lady walking by on the sidewalk started dancing.
The Doubles (small flat sandwich filled with chickpeas). Sounds boring, but whatever sauces the guy put on it was amazing. A small little packet full of flavor. I think it was only a dollar.
We also got a Bake and Shark sandwich ($5). I’ve heard of these. But I wasn’t sure if it was real shark or just fish. The guy confirmed it was shark. Dang. Fried shark pieces in a Coco bread sandwich. Tasted good. Maybe too much bread. Needs more awesome sauce. I picked up a bite on the tray that I thought fell out of the sandwich and put it my mouth. It turned out to be a piece of cartilage Yasmin spit out. Â I didn’t finish eating that piece.
The rotis the guy was making was huge. Like the size of two big burritos. As we left, an old man came dancing in. De Hot Pot!

This is what happened to Yasmin after doubling down (via Fat Booth phone app). If you order double doubles, how many will they give you? More Caribbean adventure to come. Stay tuned.
