Tahiti offers a vast array of food options but the most obvious place to start is in the capital Papeete. Here you will find street stalls selling a wide range of authentic Tahitian cuisine, including the ubiquitous Poisson Cru - a fish dish marinated with lime and served in coconut milk. There are also numerous gourmet restaurants, many of which serve an exotic mix of local Polynesian fare combined with classic French influences, while Italian, Chinese and Vietnamese are also popular dining choices.
If you're looking for a unique dining experience then pull up a seat at one of 'les roulottes' - portable meal wagons which roll out across town after dark. Remember dining in Tahiti can be expensive so this a great way to save money and sample the local fare.
