Experience a taste of Fiji culture and luxury travel with Tui Tai's exceptional dining experience. You will be confronted with tasty meals cooked to your liking, breathtaking sunsets as your background, icy cold beverages and indulgent desserts. All of your meals are prepared and served outside: on our main deck al fresco ding area, or on a remote beach, or near cascading waterfalls. Your cuisine and dining experience will deliciously merge into the colorful natural environment of Fiji
fresh, local supply
Our selection of produce and fish is wonderfully enhanced by our mobility. We get the best tomatoes from one port, the best lettuce from another, just-harvested fruit from another. If we don't find superb fish at one stop, we've got a trusted contact waiting onshore for us at the next. The result is that our kitchen is stocked fresh from suppliers on ten different islands, large and small.
personal dietary requests and restrictions
We have carefully designed our menu to cater to a wide variety of tastes, diets, and restrictions. Our standard menu includes options for the most common dietary needs and our chef can adjust recipes and make customized dishes to suit nearly any preference or need. If you have a special requirement please make sure to include this when filling out your Expedition Form so we can adjust the menu to your personal preference.
morning tea, afternoon tea, fresh fruit
Throughout the day you'll find several tasty snacks, fresh fruit, an array of exotic loose leaf tea and gourmet coffee. Snacks include homemade chocolate chip cookies, lime sugar cookies, banana bread, cinammon scones, mini pizzas, shortcake and more.
One of the most important meals of the day. You can choose amongst several cooked breakfast options and/or our cold breakfast. Cold breakfast includes home-toasted muesli, fruit salad, toast and homemade jams. We have several special cooked breakfasts, all of these are "made to order" right in front of you, just to your liking. Breakfasts include: eggs (any style) with veggies and sausage plus a daily special (one of the following): Cilantro corn fritters and spiced tomatoes, Coconut pancakes and citrus-lime syrup, Pacific vegetable hash, Vegetable fritatas, and Vanilla French Toast. It's a great start to an active day!
Often we find ourselves having lunch on a remote beach, enjoying a shady spot and a tropical breeze. One day, we'll have lunch near the waterfalls, in the middle of the lush rainforest. Lunches include Pacific Rim Burgers (choice of Thai Fish, Asian Chicken, or Beef), Mexican Fish Tacos, Make-your-own sandwiches, gourmet pizzas, and Indian curries.
Dinner is an enchanting and social occasion in Fiji. Musical entertainment of local Fijian songs by our crew will set a casual atmosphere. The outdoor dining area, illuminated by lanterns and celestial lights, becomes an opening discussion of the day's activities, highlights, story-telling and laughter. Dinners include a fresh soup to start, followed by: Mongolian Barbeque, seared chicken breast in masala sauce, fresh caught seafood, balsamic ginger beef, and an array of exotic greens and vegetables. Try and save room for dessert: grilled papaya in chili-lime syrup, sticky date pudding in butterscotch sauce, double-chocolate cookies a la mode, banana toffee cake, and passionfruit parfee with homemade ginger cookies.
