    I heard the broadcast about roti, and while it all sounded delicious it probably would have gone nowhere unless a coworker from Trinidad turned me on to Callaloo Caribbean Kitchen in Long Beach. I just had the Goat Roti w/ a side of callaloo and a fresh soursop fruit drink. My wife had the Chicken Roti w/ a side of macaroni pie (think homemade mac and cheese, like what one of your aunts would have brought to Thanksgiving) and a fresh mango/passionfruit drink. It was amazing. Learning about new cuisines is one of the many reasons we listen to your show. Keep it up!
