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).

  1. Looks delicious! I have a hangover right now and want one. Why isn't it recommended?
