Crowds flock to this Crown Heights mainstay for authentic (and inexpensive) Trinidadian eats. Take the ubiquitous buss-up shot (aka Paratha)—a light-and-flaky layered roti that resembles a busted-up shirt, hence the colloquial “buss-up shot.” Gloria serves her buss-up with any menu item of choice, from pumpkin to oxtail, but you can never go wrong with the classic starch-laden comfort that is potato and channa—an aromatic mass of curry-spiced tubers and chickpeas for a jaw-droppingly cheap $5.50.
