Village Voice's Description

There's a line out the door at this popular roti shack, where the marquee invites "Hurry, Hurry, Come for Curry." Of the rotis, our fave is conch-a plenitude of tender gastropod vying with potato for domination of the brown, thyme-inflected gravy. Or pick from curries of shrimp, goat, oxtail, and beef, any of which can also be poured over peas and rice. A particular favorite is the vegetarian corn chowder, mobbed with okra, taro, carrots, and microdumplings, and thickened Chinese style with cornstarch. Note that the sweet and frothy peanut punch is much better as a dessert.

    We can't wait to sink our teeth into another conch roti at Ali's Roti Shop, where the pink-shelled sea creature comes wrapped with potatoes and chickpeas in the Bengali flatbread called dahl poori - with extra hot sauce, of course.

    Doubles: A sweet and spicy chickpea curry that's flavored with tamarind and sandwiched between two disks of turmeric-scented deep-fried, naan-like bread known as "bara."

    Never had a chance to stop on here before. It was worth the wait. Curry Chicken Roti for me, Stew Chicken, curry Chicken, and Curry Shrimp dinners for the family.
