In the newest and latest version of the Roti Ranking Scale … I’ve applied it to two restaurants that D and I ate at this weekend. Danforth Roti Shop and ACR Doubles and Roti in Toronto.
The first calibration of the scale was done based on factors described in the scale. BTW for those who think I have waaayyy too much time on my hands … my thinking was before I actually put out my critical thoughts on BlogTO and get absolutely slaughtered by a bunch of yee-haws and white people who never ate a good roti in their lives not too mention, those Trini refugees who want to support their “fam-a-lees” business and reputation.
My logic was that by creating a relatively objective scale, it would diffuse the hate mail I would get from the community when I posted a bad ranking, since Toronto is full of absolutely garbage roti and Guyanese/Jamaican/Bajans who buy Trinidadian made roti skins and use their own “Jerk Chicken”, “Island curry” etc. I mean Toronto is a place, where some joker actually tried to put “Thai Coconut Curry” into a roti … like WDMC?
Now how does this apply to Travel? Well, if one is going to Trinidad to eat real Roti … then one should have an objective travel tool to make your experience an optimal one, never mind the fact that 93.4% of all statistics and figures are 69.12% fallacious and 4.56% buffoonery.
Here are screenshots of the 77% roti ranking, I am going to confer on Danforth Roti Shop. Now to find some time over the weekend to write a proper review. Who said food writing was easy?
