All About Doubles: Finding the Trinidadian Sandwich in Bed-Stuy

Cheap eats expert Lucas Peterson hits the streets again

In this week's Dining on a Dime, cheap eats expert Lucas Peterson heads to the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn in search of authentic Trinidadian cuisine. Trinidad has more national dishes than any other country in the world, and doubles are just one of them. A&A Bake and Doubles Shop, owned by Geeta and Noel Brown, is famous for its doubles: a hand-held Trinidadian sandwich made with fried bread and stuffed with chickpeas. Watch as Peterson digs in and learns the secret to Brown's doubles, a blend of old world ingenuity and careful attention to every step of the process.
