All of the best Roti shops can be found in my hood of Parkdale in Toronto’s West End. Bacchus Roti at Queen and Brock Streets serves up massive roti’s with a Guyanese flare. Most roti shops are known for being a bit down trodden. The typical ambiance features cheap plastic seats and corny murals of Caribbean sunsets.
The royal blue Bacchus facade is somewhat misleading as the interior has been recently refurbished into a really beautiful and comfortable interior. The staff are friendly and it appears the spot is a favorite amongst locals. I was most impressed with the quality of their ingredients. Huge pieces of fresh grilled shrimp and big chunks of chicken breast. If you have a taste for the West Indies head to Bacchus for a cheap and cheerful munch!
This was Meaghan’s first roti in LIFE so I was ever so excited that she enjoyed the experience. We shared two roti’s:
chickpea and potato curry
spinach, pumpkin and jerk chicken
#64 restaurant reviewed in Ontario since moving to Toronto in 2010.
