Ma’a Tahiti: Traditional Tahitian food is still eaten here especially on Sunday, cooked underground in an earth oven, known as a himaa. Pork, chicken, fish, shellfish, leafy green vegetables such as taro leaves, and root crops such as taro and yams are wrapped in leaves, placed on a bed of heated stones, covered with more leaves and earth, and left to steam for several hours.
Poisson cru: Or ia ota is the national dish of Tahiti and the islands. It consists of raw fish and diced vegetables marinated with lime juice and soaked in coconut milk.
Poe: The ultimate Tahitian dessert, a sweet pudding made of taro root flavoured with banana, vanilla, papaya or pumpkin and topped with a rich coconutmilk sauce.
