Drupati’s is this small Caribbean/Trinidadian restaurant that has locations across the GTA. The place here is rather large and you order by going to the back counter. The menu here offers up lots of West Indies staples like doubles, roti, jerk, etc. My friends wanted to come here because my buddy just got back from his wedding in Jamaica and was craving "Bake and Shark", which he didn't know extended into Canada.

We found this place because it had popped up with Bake N Shark, which is essentially a sandwich with fried shark meat and peppers with toppings. They use roti skin and it was actually pretty good here as the shark meat was thin but flaky and crisp.

I had to get a double and had mine with chicken too. The double was amazing. The bread was so fluffy and it had just enough curry and chickpeas where it didn't overwhelm the bread nor the really tender chicken chunks.

My main was actually fried chicken with fried rice and lo mein noodles (please don't ask why because I don't even know why), but it was a bit of a disappointment. The chicken was actually decent, while the noodles were good too, but the rice was bleh. I definitely should have used that money on either the Bake and Shark or another double because those things are so damn addicting.

The food here is pretty good, and some of the best Doubles I've had in the Greater Toronto area, if not the best. The prices are pretty fair and standard, while the place itself is rather nice (at least this location). They have some lunch specials and daily specials on a board, but I'd keep to the original menu.
