Caribbean Street Food?

amy.seigel | Jul 2, 2008 02:20 PM

I'm doing research for a freelance piece I've been assigned on Caribbean street foods. Having never been to the Caribbean, sadly, I don't really have great personal experience to draw from, and there is a real lack of information in writing (both cookbooks and articles on the internet) on the subject. So...anyone who can give me some informaiton on:

1. Typical street foods one might encouter while in the Caribbean (any of the islands are fine).
2. What's in 'em? What are the usual ingredients?
3. History? Where did these street food recipes come from?
4. Which ones are "must tries" and which might tourists want to avoid?

Any informaiton at all will be most helpful! Thank you all so much in advance.
