Teddy is long gone from the restaurant, having repaired to Trinidad, but his tiny shop remains the pit stop of choice for islanders—and others—in need of a spice fix. Roti, a delicate flatbread encasing assertively seasoned meat-and-potato stew, is the thing; one can last you two meals. And while some burger joints struggle to produce a medium-rare patty, Teddy’s can do it with hunks of goat that have been cooking for hours.
