Roti Joupa - Clapham North, London - Report

Dave MP | Nov 14, 2009 08:58 AM

Thanks to recommendations from a while back (see below), I finally made it to Roti Joupa today - arrived at 12:20 just after they opened. The guys behind the counter were quite friendly and offered advice on what to order - friend and I shared one goat roti, and one mixed vegetarian roti.

The roti were large, and the fillings were good. I especially liked the pumpkin stew in the veg roti, and when I go next time I might get a meat roti w/ added pumpkin. The goat was quite tender, and even though we asked for only a small amount of hot sauce, it was quite spicy. Lots of food, so a pretty good deal for £5 for a meat roti, £4 or less for veg.

I also tried the currant bread, which was fresh out of the oven. Quite good, especially because it was still warm. Might not be my favorite if it wasn't super fresh.

Also tried a sorrel drink, which was refreshing, and also had a taste of mauby, which I had never had before - quite interesting to have something be both so sweet and so bitter. I might get a full glass next time.

Thanks again for the recs,
Dave MP
