WHAT'S IN THE BOX


PHOLOURIE MIX

TAMARIND CHUTNEY

Made with tamarind pulp, hot peppers, spices & garlic. Popular condiment for a variety of street foods including bake & shark, pholourie and doubles.

BARA MIX


Doubles - tasty channa (chickpeas) between two deliciously spiced fried pieces of bread called bara. Top with pepper sauce, kuchela or a variety of chutneys like tamarind chutney or cucumber chutney. Yet another infamous street food!

KUCHELA


Usually made with mango (can also be made with pommecythere or vegetables), spices, garlic, mustard oil and hot peppers. A perfect condiment for doubles.

GREEN SEASONING FOR FISH & SEAFOOD


A marinade of various herbs including Spanish thyme, French thyme, lime juice, chive, celery, cilantro, garlic and pimento (seasoning) peppers. Use to marinate or "season" any type of fish or seafood. This will surely add that authentic Trinbagonian flavor to your fried shark or fish popularly eaten with fried bake. The popular bake & shark is a must try!

COCONUT MILK POWDER




A vital ingredient in many Caribbean dishes from savory to sweet. A key ingredient in popular street foods like boiled corn and the ever popular home made coconut ice cream.

DRIED SEASONING FOR FISH




A dry blend of chilies, celery powder, garlic powder, herbs, onion powder, black pepper and salt. Add to fish and seafood while marinating. Can also be added while cooking for added flavor.

COCO CRISP





Milk chocolate with tender coconut & crisp rice.

ROASTED PEANUTS


Roasted peanuts are another popular street food. Usually sold in small brown paper bags and in two varieties - "salt" (salted) or "fresh" (unsalted).
