The food in Trinidad should be better, considering all the different culinary backgrounds that shaped the island. But being as it is, we recommend sticking to local specials like stuffed crabs and chip-chip (tiny clamlike shellfish). Skip the armadillo and opossum stews. Spicy rotis (Caribbean burritos) filled with vegetables or ground meat seem to be everyone's favorite lunch, and the drink of choice is a fresh rum punch flavored with Angostura Bitters. Except for a few fancy places, dress tends to be very casual.
