This month’s Walkabout finds me as l like to call the “BEST LITTLE ROTI HUT” on King Street West, the place “FAMOUS RECIPE” of course.

It is where you can just envision this authentic little walk-in,  take out restaurant to be found dab Center on a Caribbean Island beach somewhere…all that are missing are the bar stools, sand and umbrellas out front, trade the sand in for salt and my Walkabout finds me at Famous Recipe. I chatted with  Christine De-La Rosa about the HISTORY, ORIGINS and ROOTS of her shop.


FAMOUS RECIPE is all about food and the culinary cuisine of the CARIBBEAN. Both Kevin & Christine (owners) have originated from Trinidad and Tobago which is the focus of our delicious foods & recipes. Kevin and Christine are passionate about cooking.

Kevin learned many of his skills helping both grandmothers in the kitchen. Christine originated from Guaracara Tabaquite Trinidad. Christine’s parents were well known for farming and growing many vegetables and fruits. So, as a child before coming to Canada they would have a little restaurant/store in front of her home catering to the villagers. Drawing from the diverse roots of Caribbean Cuisine, the menu offers modern renditions of Island Specialties with “OLD SHOOL HAND” as Trinidadians would say……

Famous Recipe offers our famous Boneless Chicken Roti, Doubles, Curry Goat and many vegetable dishes on Roti or Rice for our Vegan lovers. We also have a variety of daily specials which is most definitely worth the buck. All meals are seasoned with love and care as if it was a home cooked meal.

In short, FAMOUS RECIPE is an ISLAND VACATION in the Middle of Hamilton Ontario.

Famous Recipe would like to thank our valued customers for all of the support in the past 10 years.

I can attest that there Roti’s are simply the best. The View Magazine and many readers have voted this wonderful shop winning BEST CARIBBEAN for many years running. FAMOUS RECIPE is also happy to announce UBER at your door offering these wonderful home cooked meals.
