Tickle your tastebuds with local dishes that will have you craving for more.
Fish and root vegetables are common in Fiji, but that doesn’t mean the country’s dishes are boring. In fact, they’re anything but.
On the islands, be sure to try lovo, a dish cooked in banana leaves which is placed in a hole and covered in dirt until it’s smoking. You also need to try kokoda, grilled mahi mahi, rourou and cassava chips as well.
For a taste of luxury and exquisite restaurants, make your way over to Denarau Island. However, if hip bars are what you’re seeking, Nadi has the best in town.
