This cooking process gives the dish an exotic and delicious flavour. It is also served pan fried or streamed.

Lap Lap

Lap Lap is prepared by grating the yam and pounding it to a paste then it is mixed with freshly squeezed coconut cream and are layered on top of banana leaves adding more coconut cream or banana and baking it wrapped in coconut leaves.

Flying fox Curry

This dish is definitely not for the squeamish but if you are ready to step out of your comfort zone you are welcome to try this unusual and surprisingly delicious dish is made from bat meat. Yes bats! The island is home to large number of fruit bats and these creatures are the main ingredients in one of the most loved delicacies in Vanuatu.

Finding the right place and other dishes

These dishes can be found in almost all the Vanuatu Restaurants but beware some of the places practice very low standards of hygiene. You can also find these dishes in high end hotels in Vanatau like the Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu. You can try many other dishes too like the rabbit or wild duck generously cooked in red- wine and steak curry which is cooked with fruits, pepper, capsicum and tomato.
