Navigating a Fijian Food Court

Panda Express, Subway, Rubios, McDonalds, Starbucks…

Most are familiar with the typical American food court.  From greasy chow mein at Panda express to your foot long BLT sub at subway, the top floor of your local mall seems to have it all.

Looking for a quick lunch I ventured to the local mall in Suva.  Up two escalators past the shop selling saris, I was greeted with a variety of fast food stalls that blew my local mall out of the water.  Much better than the standard mall Starbucks, instead  I was confronted with a selection from which I could not choose.  There was a stop for Korean food, the typical Chinese stall, south Indian curry, vegetarian Indian, Turkish kebab, Fijian coconut and fish, and a rare place where fish and chips were the menu.

Faced with all these choices, I first tried a stall named “Oriental Cuisine” where I proceeded to order roasted chicken with a side of stir-fried veggies.

All in all I was not satisfied with my choice, so I came back and tried all the other options!  Highly recommend!

    1. Incredible! Although I’m trying to choose carefully and watch how much I eat. I’m told by my Indian friends here that Indian food here is lighter and that they use a lot of water instead of the usual coconut bases. I’m hoping to get a lesson in cooking light Indian dishes.
