Come and enjoy the rich local Tongan cuisine. In Tonga food is how all food should be: harvested fresh, cooked fresh and enjoyed fresh. The staples of Tongan foods are pork, chicken, beef, sheep ribs and of course fish to name a few popular meats. Add in some coconut milk, taro leaves and various starches such as yams, taro, sweet potatoes and tapioca and you can taste the true Tongan cuisine. Traditional food is cooked in an underground oven called umu, unless of course it is the most popular spit-roasted succulent pig. The Kingdom of Tonga offers a range of options to suit all taste buds and budgets.
