The fish you eat here is just fantastic!

Of course, seafood is at the top of the list of favourites - of all shapes and sizes and for all tastes.

 

Amongst meats, chicken is very much appreciated especially since breeding is not very expensive. However, it is the side dishes, namely corn, beans, rice, fruit-bread, cavessa, sweet potato, unusual variety of banana that end up being the base of the dish.

Their sweets also have quite a fan base with first prize going to sweet-rice, made from coconut oil, milk and sugar.
