A Taste of the World Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Shirley Roth has taught cooking locally and runs a restaurant showcasing global cuisines. At A Taste of the World she has pulled together an ambitious menu with Latin, Caribbean and Asian foods. The South Indian rava idlis, or steamed rice cakes, have a nice sour bite and come with flavored sambars; the Trinidadian chicken curry and roti seem more North Indian than Caribbean. Check out her Filipino fare: this is her native cooking and some of her best.
