  • Text




Traditional Tongan food usually includes various meats like chicken and pork, fish and shellfish. Tongan food is traditionally cooked in earth ovens called Umu and on special occasions and celebrations a pig is roasted over hot coals.  For a quick affordable meal or a cup of the beautiful locally grown coffee there are also a variety of cafes to chose from. In Tonga food is how all food should be. Harvested fresh, cooked fresh and eaten fresh.
