This Roti Speakeasy is hidden in plain sight, and has had an explosion of notoriety as the purists have weighed in to unravel the myth. The hole in the wall was not thought to have an official name, so it assumed the name of its' neighbour: Dollar Beer. However, it’s real name is R&S Roti Shop ... which still doesn’t sound as seedy as Dollar Beer, so we revert to the mistaken identity.
Some years ago @tammybassant insisted that I try it, but I didn't listen. Then Damien the Driver - a silent roti connoisseur, told me about their roti hack. So with Mona's - the other Pointe-a-Pierre Road establishment on vacation, I ventured.
By noon, most of their sides are done, but it doesn't stop the line from snaking out the door into the inadequate parking lot, where new patrons quietly inquire from loyalists whether this is the best roti shop in San Fernando that they've been hearing about. Well they definitely did let their roti, curry and service do the talking!
