Come early or get left hungry at A&A Bake & Doubles Shop, the Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn institution also known as โ€œDoubles King.โ€ Of course, if you canโ€™t make the early afternoon cutoff time for doublesโ€”the curried chickpea-filled chana bread rolls that double as Trinidadโ€™s favorite street foodโ€” at A&A (it closes at 3) head around the corner to Fulton Street for the equally famed Aliโ€™s Roti Shop, and smash some doubles as an appetizer for your goat roti. For a wild card, try the same at the lesser known but equally tasty Trini-Gul, also up the block.
