An essential part of any visit to Tobago is a plate of crab and dumplin’, macaroni pie with callaloo, or fresh fish with provisions from one of the row of food huts facing Store Bay Beach. This strip of cookshops (from right to left there’s Miss Jean’s, Miss Trim’s, Miss Joycie’s, Alma’s, Sylvia’s and Miss Esmie’s) offer tasty, inexpensive local cuisine, and the covered sea-facing gazebo with seating and tables is an attractive place to sit, eat and watch the world go by. Prices and food vary little from stall to stall: bake with fish or eggs, buljol and smoked herring for breakfast; while for lunch, there’s goat, beef, chicken or vegetable roti, stewed beef or chicken, conch or crab and dumplin’, pelau, vegetable rice, stewed lentils, macaroni pie, callaloo and ground provisions. Most stalls also make juices such as mauby or grapefruit, and perhaps peanut or sea-moss punch. All are open daily from around 8.30am to 8.30pm, but the flow of custom dictates business hours.
