Are you curious to know what kind of delicious flavours you’ll be tucking into on your holiday in this tropical paradise? Read on to get a taste of what’s to come on your great Maldivian adventure.
Buffets or Fine Dining?
The choice is yours when you check into any one of the Maldives 5 star hotels which are decorated with chefs and menus that celebrate the local produce. Resorts such as Adaaran Prestige Vadoo offer their guests the very best of Maldivian cuisine, so you don’t even have to leave your resort island to relish the fine flavours of the Maldives!
Nuts for Coconuts!
Like its neighbour, Sri Lanka, this sweet nut is heavily featured in most of the Maldivian dishes, especially in its curries! Popularly known as ‘kurumba’ in the local dialect of Dhivehi, Maldivians love coconut so much, that it’s also the country’s national tree.
The real MVP of Maldivian cuisine is fresh fish! This island nation is blessed with bountiful waters with an abundance of tuna in its oceans. Other popular and not to mention delicious species of fish include mahi-mahi, mackerel and wahoo. Whether or not you’re a pescatarian, be sure to sample the fresh fish in the Maldives.
