Best of Boston
2020 Best Neighborhood Takeout, Mattapan
Ali’s Roti Restaurant
Some takeout involves such a comically deconstructed mess of packaged components it feels like a Blue Apron–themed episode of Punk’d. This Trinidadian shop’s standard-bearer rotis, by contrast, tuck an entire meal—curried chickpeas; cabbage; the stewed oxtail, chicken, or goat—into a single, efficient, house-made wrap. Discard the bag, dig in, and give yourself (and the recycling bin) a night off.
