My favorite thing at Suzy’s Roti Parlour, a Caribbean/Trini restaurant just off of Coney Island Ave, wasn’t the roti. Yes the flaky roti dough, full of tasty vegetables like sweet squash and savory spinach, was quite tasty. The doubles, fried dough filled with chickpea curry, were fine. It definitely needed a boost from the tamarind and pepper sauces. What really stood out though, was the side dish called simply macaroni pie. A square cut from a pan of macaroni and cheese, it was surprisingly light while still being intensely flavored. It’s the perfect anytime snack, and a nice foil for the bold Caribbean flavors of the other dishes.
