This popular Caribbean joint with locations in Don Mills and near Yonge and Sheppard has been in business for more than two decades serving up oxtail, patties and their jerk chicken sandwiches on coco bread.

Apparently the roti at this Scarborough destination place has been made the same way for over a quarter of a century, so they’ve got it down. Uniquely, you can choose your preferred roti “skin,” (paratha, dahlpuri, potato puri) and the jerk chicken and doubles are just as good.
