What is the national food (dish) ???


  • Text




Palau food is predominantly Micronesian food, although the country is virtually overridden with restaurants serving every kind of international dish imaginable. Located in the Western Pacific region, the island of Palau enjoys a high number of tourists every year which accounts for the varied cuisine available all across the region. The main crop cultivated all throughout Palau is known as "taro" while sweet potatoes, tapioca and breadfruit are utilized to prepare staple dishes in the area. Fish is the most important food on the island due to its proximity to the sea. Pork and rice, eaten regularly, also make up an integral part of the Palauan cuisine. However, the younger generation prefers Western style meals and the fast food culture is growing in the region.
