At the special time out on the coral reef at night. There will be a great commotion and many lights out in the water. Sau ai Palolo! Deep in the coral lives a segmented sea creature that looks like a long piece of sphagetti. It can be blue or gold and they rise to breed only twice a year. Reach into the water with your fingers outspread and bring the palolo to your bucket.
The longer the creature, the better. They break easily, so be gentle.
For the best treat, you pop them into your mouth and enjoy. You can make someone real happy to bring them some fresh palolo. It must be eaten right away or frozen quickly for the future. Palolo left in the bucket will turn into a clear mass of small segments.
Favorite Dish: You have to eat Palolo, it is a unique seafood that only comes twice a year and you are unlucky to miss it.
This is not so much a restaurant as a communal dining facility in the lounge area of the Va'oto Lodge accommodation. You'll probably be staying here if you're dining here, but it is open to non-guests. Breakfast, lunch and dinner or all served at regular times, with everybody eating together at one big table. What food you get depends on what is available on the day, but it's always good. You'll almost certainly be dining with a mix of interesting academics and adventurers. Lunch sets up a perfect afternoon of swimming and snorkelling at the beautiful Ofu Beach, which in turn will work up a heart appetite for the evening meal.
If you're staying at the Lodge, your accommodation price will include three meals. Otherwise, you can negotiate a price per meal if you're a non-guest.
1)Giordannos- Great Pizza, just ask the cab driver to take you to Fale Pizza in Mototuua
2)the Food Market: the only thing open 24 hours a day seven dayas a week, like on sunday when everything except McDonalds is closed
3)Sails on Beach rd. next to the Coast Bar and Grill. Expensive but yummy
Le Godenet in Apia for their seafood buffet!!
Sadies in Pago - As seen in the picture here, yes... that's the old Sadi Thompson Hotel (those of your who remember the story 'Rain')
Mel & Gretchens on the waterfront in Pago (behind the marketplace, don't let it fool you)
In Samoa don't bother yourself with price (except at Aggie Grey's which is way over priced)... BUT they do put on a great Samoan buffet if your in the mood for tourist type fare...
Le Godenet? The atmosphere is totally something out of the South Pacific of 75 years ago... and the seafood in NOT to be missed!
