Taha’a, the real flavor of Polynesia.
A picnic on the motu or a dinner on the terrace? The local cuisine is as good as the view in Taha’a. The cuisine in Taha’a is based on fresh seafood, either cooked or uncooked, (if it’s poisson cru). But its most distinguishing feature is vanilla, which isn’t surprising because, after all, Taha’a is known as vanilla island. The island’s chefs are masters in the use of this versatile spice, which can accompany main courses as well as deserts. As you pass by, the scent of vanilla wafts from the kitchens of restaurants, food trucks, and snacks, as an invitation to your taste buds. Bon appetit!
