Originally from India, the Caribbean roti refers both to a crêpelike wheat wrapper as well as to a dish in which the wrapper gets filled with curried vegetables, fish, or goat. Christine Gouveia's roti is neither puffed nor crêpelike, but rather a well-seasoned ground chickpea, flour-based bread. She makes thirteen types of mildly spicy curries, including beef, chicken, conch, shrimp, trout, duck, and goat, all of which are sure to satisfy fans of those foods. Her most popular roti envelopes pieces of fiery jerk chicken still on the bone, mixed in with potatoes, cabbage, carrots, chickpeas, and onion. Christine's roti tastes good wrapped around just about anything, which is why it's not a bad idea to pick up a dozen ($21) to go from this little joint. Aerosmith liked the look enough to use it as a setting for its "Taste of India" video. We don't know about Steven Tyler's taste in food, but we can say that if you want as good a roti as you'll find north of the Caribbean, just walk this way.
