Most of Parkdale’s roti shops compensate for their grungy interiors with huge servings of gut-busting curry. Bacchus, which received the Restaurant Makeover treatment in 2008, is refreshingly bright and chic. Large, soft cubes of fiery chicken make a potent jerk filling; they’re excellent whether packed into Bacchus’s blistered, flaky shells or served on rice. The shrimp roti with mild spinach is creamy and sweet. The goat version brings more fat and sinew than meat, but it’s filled with nicely grainy curried potatoes. A paltry selection of domestic and import beers is on hand if you’d like to tame the spice; super-strong ginger beer ramps it up.
