West Indies in Winter Garden

by


Singh's Roti Shop (5812 Old Winter Garden Road, 407-447-3447) is a little piece of the West Indies, with flavors and smells like nothing you'll find anywhere else.

The amazingly varied menu starts with influences of Indian and Chinese cooking and then goes wild with spices. Singh's specializes in roti -- flat wheat bread similar to Indian chapati -- that's wrapped around rich and spicy fillings like a giant burrito. Try shrimp or chicken, or be adventurous and get a goat or conch-filled beauty. Side order specialties include aloo pie (potatoes cooked with garlic, turmeric and cumin), dhal puri (a soft pita stuffed with ground split peas) and "buss up shot," pieces of roti served with chunks of meat or veggies.

Order up a bowl of jerk chicken and chow mein, or dig into crab and calooloo and a glass of peanut punch, and beat your hunger the island way.
