Cook Islands

Don't eat pizza in the Cook Islands before you have tried the local stuff which is admittedly hard to find:

ika mata

raw fish with coconut milk, finely chopped vegetables. it is delicious!

umu food

prepared in the traditional earth oven

curried eke

octopus in coconut curry

rukau

taro leaves, usually cooked with coconut cream

poke

cooked fruit pudding banana, pawpaw,... with coconut milk.

Some of these are available every day at the market in Avarua.Every 2 weeks there is a "Go Local" market where locals sell their products.
