Breakfast At Piggy

Two…slight



Piggy and his doubles located on the Western main road, Trinidad

Doubles is a staple diet in Trinidad and Tobago and you can find these food vendors set up on the roadside throughout the country. According to Piggy, the owner of this doubles spot on the Western Main Road, preparing for two hundred customers is no easy task. You are at it for five hours or until it all runs out. The preparation of doubles is done by contract which begins around 2am to be ready and freshly made by 6am.

Doubles (meaning two bharras) is similar to Roti, the Bharra is filled with channa and topped with a variety of chutneys. Serving doubles is an art in itself as it requires two people who can work quickly together. One is in charge of taking orders while the other prepares the order. Generally this food should be eaten immediately. Popular locations are the Barataria roundabout and n front of the Brooklyn Bar, Port of Spain where George and George’s Ex compete for customers.
