What to Eat in Trinidad & Tobago

With such a mashup of cultures present on the T&T islands, visitors will find food choices that range from Creole to Chinese, West Indian to European, African to Indian. Dining options on Tobago are more affordable, but travel experts recommend the restaurants on Trinidad, especially around Port of Spain, for good food.

You'll find crab and dumpling on many menus, but some writers suggest you try some roti (flat bread stuffed with chicken, fish, goat or curry) instead. Wash it down with a planter's punch, a popular local drink made with fruit juices, grenadine, Angostura bitters, curaçao and rum.
