Is Tonga known for specific food/cuisine?

Lu Pulu dish consists of coconut milk, tomatoes, canned corned beef, and onions. Of course, the coconut is locally harvested, but the corned beef comes from New Zealand. The meal is prepared by combining all the ingredients and wrapping them in taro leaves. Next, they fold the fish mixture into banana leaves or foil. Finally, they bake the Lu Pulu in a modern oven or traditional underground oven. You can enjoy a delicious Lu Pulu dish at The Fish Market or Waterfront Lodge and Café. In Tonga, the dish “Ota Ika” tops the list in both local and luxury restaurants. This meal consists of raw fish marinated in fresh coconut cream and a touch of citrus juice. The fish is left to set and later combined with tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, and cucumbers. The best time to sample “Ota Ika” and other traditional dishes is during cultural festivals when locals prepare a variety of dishes.

You can explore the Vava’u archipelago lagoon in northern Tonga and swim with the humpback whales between June and November. You can see plenty of marine life during August and September when mother humpbacks and their calves migrate to the shore in large numbers. This island is a natural nursery for calves and a mating zone for male and female whales. Pigs are a common sight in Togo. However, the fishing pig is a sight worth seeing when you tour the beach at Taufo’ou. These pigs eat seaweed and fish and have a fishy taste when cooked. This peaceful island of Tongatapu has been known to the west since 1770 when Captain James Cook named them the “Friendly Islands.” Check out the Talamahu Markets in Nuku’alofa, the country’s capital, on Tongatapu, where you can buy fresh produce and local handicrafts. While you’re near Nuku’alofa, see the Anahulu caves. When you book a tour, you can arrange to swim among the stalactites in the beautiful underground freshwater pool. If hiking is your thing, you can climb Mt Talau in Neiafu on Vava’u for some incredible ocean views. Take advantage of domestic flight deals to move from one island to another.
