You should be able to find many good places to eat on this strip. Having a car makes getting around easy, but driver beware. Trinidad drivers are nuts!

The atmosphere is a very busy one. There are many cars travelling and stopping at the bars ,some of which have open areas for relaxing and having drinks.There are also many Chinese and creole restaurants.Roadside hamburger ,doubles,and barbeque stalls are everywhere.

There's a guy with a colourful umbrella and a small ice cream cart - I think it's B&G's. He is in front of an open doorway and there are lines every time you go. Local family produced ice cream with flavours like guinness, peanut, coconut (favourite), soursop - delicious, creamy and not like store-bought. Where can you get really fantastic,... More
