Doubles at Singh's Roti Shop - Report

Dave MP | | Mar 9, 2011 05:59 PM

I went to Singh's Roti Shop tonight for the first time since 2005, possibly even 2004. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was able to order doubles, which are made fresh to order.

The doubles at Singh's Roti Shop were seriously good - a fresh, fluffy sandwich of fried dough, filled with chickpea curry, a dash of homemade hot sauce, and some sweet tamarind sauce. The hot sauce had a sweet scotch-bonnet flavor, and lots of heat.

My DC and I also shared a chicken roti, which was huge (plenty for the two of us). This was also good, but didn't stand out to me as much as the doubles. The vegetarian components of the roti were the most impressive bits - again, the chickpea curry, and also the green vegetable. I thought the chicken was okay, and the roti was not freshly made and was a bit dried out. Still, not bad. I think these might be a better bet at a time of day with more turnover. I also might try a veggie version next time - and I remember really liking the pumpkin back in 2005.

We also had a bottle of the sorrel juice, which is a very strong, dark purple brew. Very good and refreshing.

The doubles here are really worth it - this was one of the best things I've eaten in Boston since moving back here last fall.

I originally found out about this place thanks to Chowhound, but I haven't heard much about it recently, so I thought it was worth mentioning again!
