Kiribati Food and Drink
Restaurants are few in number and are situated mainly in the larger towns.
• In the southern islands, the boiled fruit of pandanus (screwpine), sliced thinly and spread with coconut cream.
• Palu sami (coconut cream with sliced onion and curry powder, wrapped in taro leaves and pressure cooked in an earth-oven packed with seaweed. It can be eaten on its own or served with roast pork or chicken).
• As in many of the islands of the South Pacific, there is a tendency amongst local people to regard imported canned products as luxuries.
