Street food has received a trendy makeover over the last few years thanks to the proliferation of boutique food trucks in major US cities, but any seasoned traveler will tell you that the Caribbean runs the roadside eats game. Whether it’s the jerk chicken served up from smoky steel drums at Boston Beach and Red Hills Road, the shark and bake huts at Trinidad’s Maracas Beach, or the Dominican empanada trucks that thrive in NYC’s early morning hours, these simple and cheap delicacies have seen some truly unique cultures created around them.

Now, keep in mind that the order of this list is highly subjective, but don’t hesitate to rep your island’s roadside gems in the comments section.
