“variety”

There was a wide selection of street food vendors with reasonable prices. The roti and doubles with pepper was hot but tasty.

“Western Main Road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

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, authentic coconut ice cream that tastes like coconut in North America? Worth driving along Western Main Road for - this is a road teeming with activity day and night, grocery and convenience stores, restaurants, shops, and more, as well as some roadside vendors. Usually busy but again, step out of your hotel and explore trini life.

“Also Known as St. James”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

AKA: St. James, The city that never sleeps.

During the day, looks like a regular business (Caribbean) district and main road.

At nights, you have a variety of rum bars, restaurants, street food etc. that you will not find in fancy restaurants.

If you want to get a true taste of Trinidad street food, then this is the place for you.

It may be a shock for some to see people standing at the side of the street limin with a beer in their hand.

A must do for visitors to Trinidad.

Good place to also enjoy a beer for TT$8
