When going to debe u must try the hotspot "d green shed" it is d best hot on d spot. U can get everything from doubles, aloo pie, saheena and katchourie. When u are finished u can always grab some local sweets in a shop nearby especially the "jilaybi".

Met some local people on my first trip down, and we started talking about local foods. We went into town and stopped at this very busy stand in downtown for DOUBLES. They were so spicy and yet SO GOOD! Then we walked across the street and had some corn soup- sweet and delicious!

different kinds of food carts, you can get Indian, jerk, barbecue, corn soup. be careful of which you pick, you want a pleasant experience. look carefully who the crowd is buying from, ask someone about the quality and taste. Be careful of the hot sauce, ask for slight. (can be very hot for the inexperience)

A must place to stop for a wee snack on the way home from anywhere ! There is always a crowd of people at the stalls, many eating where they stand, some sitting, some in cars. Never disappointed .

I went to a few doubles carts to taste this local street food. The bara was what differentiated one cart from the next. Also - the longer the line, the better the doubles! The cost for one double was about 5 TT$. We also went to the market in POS on Saturday and picked up a few fish, beef, and... More

Not to be missed in Trinidad is "doubles", the Indian-Trini street food made of fried bara, a split-peas dough, filled with savory cooked channa (chickpeas), mango chutney, shado beni sauce (like cilantro), and with or without pepper. Go early in the morning, when they are fresh and look for ones with the most customers, in General. Ask around for the... More

every country/island i visit, i must have something from a street vendor. this includes doubles. word of advice: when going to buy any street food, especially doubles, ALWAYS go by the most crowded place where people are eating on the spot.

British influence in cuisine in the former colonies can be thought if either as deplorable or unfortunate. Many countries in the Americas, such as Belize and some Caribbean islands are now suffering from the over-fried and taste-killing cooking inheritance. Trinidad and Tobago are no exception. On the other hand, they say that Kentucky Fried Chicken is a new local favorite,... More
