Trend-O-Meter Says: Pita Is Out, Roti Is In (8/7/09)

Long a staple favorite of old school NYC Caribbean and Indian restaurants, roti (an Indian flatbread made with whole wheat flour) wrapped around a curry filling is catching on elsewhere. Spotted at the street food spinoff of NY’s upscale Tabla; with free range turkey at San Francisco’s Kasa Indian Eatery; and fusion style with hummus, at Chicago’s Roti Mediterranean Grill.
