If it’s one thing that i myself have thanked God for , is the many dishes that our island can call our very own..with influences from India to as far as Spain, you can taste the spirit of the world in our meals.

With so many takes and articles on the vast goldmine of Cuisine documented to date and since you are only on a stopover i will try to highlight our street foods, one being a special Roti made on the streets before your very eyes. Come with me on a journey to the town of the St James at night to dig into this minimalist style of the Roti.

(Roti is a flatbread native to the Indian subcontinent made from flour, traditionally known as atta, and water that is combined into a dough to create a satin,smooth sometimes busted up bread …its side kicks are ,pumkin,string beans,curried potatoes and chick peas…a curried meat of choice tops it and oh yes the pepper sauce to make you cry…
Main ingredientsAtta flour
well the above description sounds like a Roti grown up in the richest parts of Trinidad , well educated and well groomed just to be eaten but the Roti we are talking about as they say in Trinidad ” He make jail already” meaning it bad ……but in a good way…!

Dosti Roti
