“Many food places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

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!

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.
