If you have ever lived in Trinidad and Tobago or have visited there, you will be well aware of the array of scrumptious delicacies on offer.
You will also know that sometimes there is nothing better than the delicious grub that you can find on your local street corner.
Here are 5 street foods you will never be able to forget once you’ve tried them:
After eating corn soup, you will forget everything you thought you knew about soup.
This thick and scrumptious meal is a street food favourite amongst those living in Trinidad and its safe to say nowhere can recreate this dish quite like home.
Served piping hot and filled with chunky helpings of corn on the cob, carrots, dumplings and sweet potato, this soup is a meal in itself.
Another Trini favourite, Chow incorporates half-ripe fruits into small pieces and tops it delicious toppings.
Think of everything from salt and black pepper to lime juice and chopped hot peppers. The mixture of sweet and savoury is just right.
A favourite amongst locals and visitors alike, doubles can be eaten any time of the day and found in any of the major cities of Trinidad and Tobago.
Doubles are made up of two pieces of fried bread and a curried chickpea sauce. Not to mention the sauces! Doubles are often doused with homemade sauces such as fiery pepper or coconut chutney.
If you are craving a bit of meat in this vegan masterpiece, many vendors offer stewed and curried chicken also (though many Trinis will only have the authentic non-meat version).
Crab and dumpling
While this dish is more associated with the island of Tobago, it can still be considered a street food speciality.
As Tobago’s signature dish, Trini’s know that this food is made best by locals.
Fresh crab is curried and accompanied by dumplings that are perfect for soaking up all of that delicious sauce!
Anyone from Trinidad will know that this dish is not for the faint of heart.
Consisting of pig feet or chicken feet, souse is made by boiling these cuts in a tangy sauce and lime juice finished with peppers, cucumbers and onions.
