One of the best Macaroni Pies I have ever eaten along with the hottest Pepper Sauce, great atmosphere and so cheap. Local Fast food at its best, all cooked fresh to order, it must be good as a lot of locals go there to it!

We loved this place, good wholesome local food and pretty cheap. There are plenty of places inside to choose from which makes it a little difficult to know which is better (as tourists) so we plumped for the place with a bigger queue. Between us...More

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.
