Dining at a food truck in San Fernando

Dining at a food truck in San Fernando.

By Marissa Armoogam. The social dynamics and general culture in Trinidad has evolved considerably over the past years. I was born and grew up in the south of the island and I have always found it to be a bit more relaxed and laid back in comparison to the lifestyle of the northerners.

One of the welcomed changes to southern living has been the introduction of a more vibrant night life; in particular the numerous food trucks which come out nightly and line the streets in many of the districts. One such area is at Lady Hailes Avenue in Cross Crossing, San Fernando, also known by locals as the “Cross”.

As night sets in the food truck opens for business

Every night around seven o’clock, the trucks pull into their designated parking areas and begin setting up their tents and other items to prepare for the influx of customers who descend upon the trucks ready to devour the succulent dishes they offer for sale.

The foods available come from cultures across the globe, they range from curry dishes, to local cuisines, various types of meat and vegetable burgers and hot dogs, corn soup, gyro, taco, burrito, and the Trini favourite doubles.

I usually take a casual drive with my two children down to the “Cross” on any given day and hand in hand we walk from food truck to food truck trying to decide of which dish we will partake. The environment is clean and comfortable, the people are friendly and welcoming and the food is delicious. So I extend an open invitation to all my northern brothers and sisters the next time you are down south, take a drive to the “Cross” and enjoy the dining experience.

  1. The Garcinia Cambogia Extract came to prominence after Dr.
    Julie Chen , a practitioner in diets and weight loss, was able to release
    findings that demonstrated taking the Garcinia Cambogia Extract led
    to two to three times more weight loss than taking routine supplements.

  2. However, your weight problems all can become a distant memory just by
    consuming the infusion of a fruit known as Garcinia Cambogia.

  3. Unlike other products, Just Inspired Garcinia Cambogia+ is formulated with no proprietary
    blends.
