Outside of resort areas, the streets of urban Fiji are dotted with restaurants that offer local Fijian food as well as Indian, Chinese, Thai and other continental fare. Vibrant markets are a bustling hive of activity. Sample some of the sweetest pineapples you will ever taste, bananas positively bursting with flavour and seasonal mangos that will make your taste buds tingle with delight. Of course no trip to Fiji would be complete without sampling the national drink – kava. Dried and pounded roots of the kava plant are and mixed with clean, fresh rainwater, and shared as a symbol of acceptance and friendship. Presented in a coconut shell cup (known as a ‘bilo’), kava drinking is an integral part of the culture and fun for everyone. Interactive cooking classes will help you take these delicious flavours of Fiji home with you. Eat, drink and be HAPPY!
