Good food is an enormous part of local culture in Samoa. Every big celebration in Samoa always includes a feast – and we’re not talking a light snack. So much love and preparation go into traditional Samoan food and eating together with extended family is one of the greatest joys of Samoan life. If you want a true Samoan experience, make sure you eat as the locals do during your stay.
Being an island nation, seafood features widely in local cuisine and is usually complemented by delicious tropical fruits and vegetables. In fact, fruit is plentiful including bananas, mangos, papaya, star fruit, and pineapple. Coconut is also used widely through a variety of dishes, while the meat used in Samoan meals is normally chicken (moa) and pork.
