Grubby: A & A Bake and Doubles
In the pulsating heart of Bedstuy, at Fulton and Nostrand, sits A & A Bake and Doubles, a seat-less counter serving delicious Trinidadian short-eats - especially breakfast breads. I have come here today to praise the double.
A double(s) is a warm, squishy, irresistably chewy and sweet flatbread. It is sluiced with a brown, spicy chickpea curry. Then you have them add a mango/chili salsa to spice it some more. They twist it in tissue paper and place it in your hand for a DOLLAR. Yes, $1.
Biting into the sloppy, chewy warmth is really pleasant. It is an entirely original and unique taste and texture. Go!
Not recommended as a hangover treat.
Info: Nostrand right north of Fulton, daytime only, open weird hours (closed 3 of the 5 times I've visited).
