The Trinidad ‘Nutsman’ (video)

In Trinidad the nutsman is a fixture on the street food scene and at sporting events. Sometimes he moves around with a cart, other times with a tray around his neck. Yet others have roadside stands, like the man in the above clip from the bookmann. As you can see people line up, prepared to wait, if a particular vendor’s reputation has dubbed his roasting style worthy. You can get your nuts plain, salted, or honey roasted. :) Click here to see another nutsman in action (note that the nuts are transported on the back of his modified bicycle!)
