Sure, there's a serious lack of air conditioning, and random dancehall concert posters adorn the walls. But L.C. Roti is the spot for the softest, freshest, and yummiest roti in North Dade. Located in a Caribbean-centric strip mall off State Road 441 in Miami Gardens, the place regularly boasts a dinnertime line of customers waiting for puffy white pillows of dough made from yellow split-pea flour, slapped onto a floured board, and rolled out per order. From homemade chickpeas and potatoes to juicy jerk chicken to conch and shrimp or even duck, have whatever you desire ($5 to $8). You can even watch head chef and owner Elsie roll you a big ol' fatty after you tell her how spicy you want it. If you request it hot, be sure to have a cold Red Stripe on hand to help vanquish the fire (fresh sugar-cane juice works too). And you know you have a good and authentic roti when dust from ground-up dahl (yellow split pea) comes flying out of the bread's inner layers upon every bite. Don't forget to wipe your mouth -- dahl tends to leave a yellow mustache. Other items include buss-up shut, sweet fried dough; pholourie, fritters made from yellow split peas; and L.C.'s Trinidadian burritos, which can last you days.
