Roti Rolls has been slinging South Asian flatbreads filled with distinctly Southern ingredients that are local and seasonal since the earliest days of the local food truck trend. They’ve become pros at layering flavors, textures, and cuisines, exemplified by the Thurman Murman. This roll is packed with a slightly spicy mac and cheese, crunchy pickled veggies that are cool and tart, and a rich and savory short rib. The roti itself is equally soft and crunchy. Other components include curried peaches, local sausage, kimchi, and pork belly. They make eggy breakfast rotis too, and they’ve been known to serve the occasional burger or hot dog (with their own, local-centric twists). We haven’t seen it on the menu recently, but their Buddha Bowl (a soupy mix of rice, noodles, broth, veggies, kimchi, and more) was a big hit this winter. The talents behind Roti have settled down recently with a permanent location called the Green Door, but you can still find Roti Rolls roaming the streets from time to time. —Susan Cohen Dish (Winter 2013)
