“Doubles”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

George has been selling doubles outside the Brooklyn Bar for many years. Doubles is like a sandwich made with a fried chickpea paste called bara and filled with curried chickpeas and topped with a variety of chutneys. Very ecomical and tasty!

“You must try "Doubles"”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

A unique food, almost like a bean burrito (although better than any bean burrito that I have ever eaten). Optional three sauces. None of the locals were ordering the pepper sauce and neither did we. The tamarind sauce gives the double a pleasant taste.

“What a breakfast!”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

Doubles are sandwiches of curried chick peas between two fried fritters of split pea flour. Sauces include sweet sauce, chutney and chadon beni suace ( reminiscent of coriander). This is breakfast in Trinidad and what a breakfast it is. Cheap and very filling, but super delicious! George X is one of the best doubles stands
