Every local has their favorite roti place.  While we don’t like to get in the middle of it, we are chucking our hat in the corner of Ideal Roti.

To the untrained eye, the roti wrap might seem like just a simple tortilla.  But once you bit into it, you will realize how different they are.  Rotis are flakier and lighter.  They are stuffed with curried, grilled, or stewed meats and vegetables.  Ideal roti has a great selection to choose from and our favorite is the goat roti.

But, no matter what you get, it’s going to be the perfect meal to eat on the go, filling, flavorful, and simple.  Just make sure to grab extra napkins because we aren’t saying they’re neat.

Pro tip: leave the roti wrapped in foil and peel it back as you eat to avoid an explosion.

This beloved spot can be tricky to find, be sure to use the link above to find it with Google Maps.
