Shalama's Halal Roti Shop

Step into Shalama's Halal Roti Shop, located along the ethnic food haven that is 441 in Margate, and you'll instantly be transported to the islands thanks to Trinidadian tunes and the wafting smells of freshly griddled roti (Indian flatbread) and bubbling curries. At Shalama's, the peppa is hot and the curries are too; daily-changing specials keep the food as fresh and vibrant as the jams. Try straights (vegetarian potato and chickpea curries served with rice or roti) for a starchy, spicy meal without the guilt. Or check out the roti stuffed with boneless, white meat chicken -- perfect for non-Trinis looking for a taste of the islands without the sharp bones. Prices are as low as the bass drones blasting from the kitchen.
