There are many different kinds of fruits available throughout the year. Farms that grow vegetables or rear pigs are also available. Breadfruit, pandanus, coconut, maize, tomato, sweet potato, cassava, papaya, pumpkin, “nin” (noni), lime, pigs, and fowl make up the majority, if not all, of the produce. Along the route from Ajeltake to Laura, there are other stalls selling fruit and traditional cuisine.
The Marshall Islands were formerly regarded as the world’s “fishiest” location, owing to the number of fish species found in Marshallese seas. However, there is much doubt as to whether this is still true today, owing to concerns about overfishing and the loss of natural habitat by ship anchors, toxic chemicals, and climate change.
There are a number of restaurants that offer foreign cuisine. Among the most well-known are the Marshall Islands Resort’s (MIR) Enra Restaurant and Robert Reimers Enterprises’ (RRE) Tide Table.
Monica’s (Chinese), La Bojie’s (Filipino), China Restaurant (Chinese), Special Restaurant (Chinese), Oriental Noodle (Chinese), The Stone House (Japanese), and Aliang Restaurant are all non-Marshallese owned eateries (Chinese).
