“real local food”

Femmes du Chalet Breakfast Shack
Ranked #131 of 168 Restaurants in Port of Spain
Cuisines: Caribbean
Description: An array of food stands within a cafeteria-like setting, some have claimed that this is one of the best places to experience local Trini cuisine at it's finest. Situated right next to the actual Port, this has traditionally been a place for the Portsmen to grab a bite to eat before their long days at the Port. Though it is now a place where many Trini business people will stop by to grab some delicious and quick. Inside, they host everything from refreshing fruit smoothies to some of Trinidad's local classics that you can not easily find at street vendors' stands. Not to mention, it sits right on the water and provides some excellent views.

About 3 blocks from the cruise port and short walk to this "Original Breakfast Shed" located right next and passed the Hyatt hotel is a collection of small stands ran by local people with their own unique style of local cooking. The local tourist guides all around the port can direct you to the place.

You order the food by pointing to the dish you want and then seat in open picnic benches facing the sea. You eat with the locals.
Not a restaurant but a fast food type collection of stalls with very reasonable price and food acceptable and liked by the locals Has definite local ambience.

I have LOVED the Breakfast Shack since it was an actual galvanized structure (aka shack). Now that they're in this breezy semi-open air building, the food and the atmosphere are just as good and the prices ain't to bad either, especially given the amount of stuff you get on your plate. Great place to drop by on the way to work or early on a weekend morning.

Femmes du chalet i have visted on more than one occassion, this was built a few years ago to replace "the breakfast shed" unfortunately some of the atmosphere was lost when this was done. The food i must say is only average. i have been in Trinidad a considerable length of time and enjoy local food but this is a hit and miss. some days it is good, some bad, unfortunately also although waterfront property it is still not the best. Prices have increased over time.
