The local cuisine revolves around fish and rice. A typical meal will have a helping of rice served with a local fish preparation. Trevallies, barracuda and tuna are the preferred fish here, and are prepared in spicy curries. Most meals begin with a bowl of Garudhya, or tuna soup

The food is usually washed down with a cup of black tea. Being an Islamic country, alcohol and pork is prohibited and only available at tourist resorts.
