Not About Food

A Chowhound resource you might never have thought of...

Some just posted on the General Topics board asking for definitions of various obscure terms (most derived from Hindi, I believe) used on the menu of his favorite Trini roti shop. Now my first instinct in such a case would be to call upon an information resource I've used often though most Chowhounds neglect it. Most countries have consulates, and some have tourist offices in most major cities. Airlines can be good too. What I'd do in this case is telephone the Trinidad mission to the United Nations and ask them. Part of their job is to help Trini businessmen get more business, and that's what they will be doing by helping you. And, for a homesick Trini (or any other nationality), discussing the tastes of home can be very pleasant indeed. You'd be doing them a favor!
