Just ordered a shrimp roti from the Real Jerk for take-out

All these thoughts of roti's here made me order a shrimp roti from the Real Jerk for lunch. I decided to try the one at the Real Jerk today, and next time I will try the one at Simone's for comparison. I very rarely order roti's and other Caribbean food but with two places opening close to home this past week, I thought I'd try both out a few times. I just finished eating the roti from the Real Jerk. (9.50 + tax = $10.74 ). Since the article on chicken rotis in NOW from 2011 specified the weight of each roti they tried, I weighed mine, it was 519 grams/ 18 oz.. It had a good amount of large shrimp that were of very good quality. (not mushy or soft). The gravy inside was very mild, I think at that spice level just about anyone could eat it without a problem. I had expected it to be a bit hotter, perhaps I have to specify that. The roti skin was nice and thin, in comparison to some I have had which are made of thicker layers. Overall, I enjoyed it. I'll check out the shrimp roti at Simone's next. Caribbean DutchPot does not offer a shrimp roti.
