Foods of Papua New Guinea
October 23, 2016
Although there's a distinct lack of Chicago-style pizza restaurants here in Ukarumpa, there's lots of other tasty tropical treats available. For example:
Bananas. You should know what these look like.
Ugal (at POC) demonstrating the proper way to open a coconut
Baby pineapples growing in my back yard
Despite its appearance, passion fruit tastes delicious
Rambutan. You eat the small white part.
Kaukau (sweet potato), the staple food of PNG
Snake beans were named by the same genius who came up with the name "orange"
All these and more can be found at the Ukarumpa market, rain or shine!
And, moving on from the produce department...
Fresh fish, if you're lucky enough to live on the coast
It tastes... American?
Oreos! Hey, wait a minute...
Chicken flavored crackers are quite popular. Also available in beef.
