Our Man Sietsema: ‘Oddly Vaginal

We read Sietsema’s review with particular interest this week, as we have recently been loving us some roti, and Our Man, who was recently in Trinidad honing his taste buds, has just discovered a strip of roti shops in Rockaway.

Most exciting, and most likely to get us out there, is news of the presence of duck, which we haven’t seen in Bed-Stuy, where we most often consume the bundles of curried meats and vegetables.

Oh, he also found some pastry called “vaginal butter flap,” which is your new nickname.
