Roti shops the life savers for curry

“Hurry, hurry, come for curry,” said calypsonians Dave “Booker” Martin and Byron Lee and The Dragonaires in their old school hits. Every Divali, the lines at roti shops overflow onto the pavements of Trinidad and Tobago. At Hosein’s Roti Shop on Independence Square in Port of Spain you can see hungry customers securing their spots just to reach the cashier.

People want to pay for their dhalpuri or buss up shot specials inclusive of channa and potato, pumpkin, bodi, bhaji, curried mango, and chutney which may be completed with either curried chicken, beef, shrimp, or goat. Chan’s Roti Shop is located on First Street in Arouca and provides the neighbourhood with the curried delicacies loved by so many Trinbagonians. While many cooks are preparing a large spread for their families, many people are thankful for roti shops to save the day. That means curry for everybody on Divali!
