Get Your Pepper Sauce

Get Your Pepper Sauce

When a Trini tells you the pepper hot, trust him. He knows what he's talking about. We seem to have mastered the art of distilling the hottest fire of sun-ripened peppers into a sauce that is enough to bring tears to a grown man's eyes. And that's just by opening the bottle.

Pepper sauce in Trinidad occupies pride of place on every dining table and restaurant. If you ain't got pepper sauce, you ain't Trini. Even the major fast food franchises are boastful of their pepper sauce blends. Chicken and chips with ketchup? Oh please!

I don't think I've ever seen this much pepper sauce in one place. This vendor in La Brea probably has a blend for every palate. And not just pepper sauce, but other spicy condiments including amchar, kuchela and chalta to name a few.
