Rude Native - Hamilton, ON (BAD)

I had my suspicions about this place before we went, but my sister wanted to go for the rotis, and I had a hankering for rotis too. I was a little concerned that they invested too much of their resources in the aesthetics of the establishment when I first walked in, and this proved true. Jalapeno bread was not bad, but the hummus served with it was way too thick and had a very powdery texture (not flavorful at all either). Coconut shrimp had little flavor as well and the batter was too thick for my liking. The salad plopped in the middle was good though, especially with the peanut-y sauce on the plate. Goat roti -- very dry, and the roti:filling ratio was way too high, making the dry filling even less exciting. Not much flavor in the filling either (although the goat was cooked pretty well). Jambalaya was bland. The fries that came with the roti were pretty good, but then again, they were just fries. I won't return, however, there's a place next door that does rotis & other West Indian stuff that I plan on checking out.
