I had supper this evening at Street Shak Caribbean Kitchen on Queen Street W (at Palmerston). I've walked by it many many times and and have been wanting to check it out.
The inspiration for Street Shak came from the food that Streek Shak owner, Tony Bradshaw, enjoyed while growing up in Barbados. Street Shak is Tony’s way of bringing guests to Barbados and having them experience some of the local dishes featured at street food shacks on the island - local treasures like freshly grilled food at Oistins market or Cuz’s, which has been selling fish sandwiches on Pebbles Beach for over 50 years. These dishes along with other Caribbean favourites have been elevated through modern techniques that Tony gained from 20 years in the restaurant business.
I love love love chicken rotis and ordered one. I usually head to Island Foods when I'm craving a roti. This was a different style than theirs in taste and the filling but it was delicious.
I'll be back again for a chicken roti and I'd love to try their jerk chicken!
