Ask someone who enjoys traveling and they’ll tell you that one of the things they enjoy most when they’re in a new location is that they get the chance to taste the places they visit with excellent and very tasty cuisine.
Each nation has its own specialty, but how the specialty is prepared and served is what makes each different.
When you are after a gastronomical holiday, this is what makes the Maldives a dream destination. Read and get a taste of what a holiday in Maldives is like!
Since the Maldives is surrounded by water, it is not surprising to find out that the most prominent and most important element of Maldivian cuisine is fish, particularly tuna.
However, new vegetables, seasonings, and spices were introduced to the island as many travelers around the world visit the area, adding more taste and flavor to the existing and restricted repertoire of seafood and tubers of the Maldives.
The diet that is most palatable and appetizing to the Maldivian taste buds was seamlessly integrated with each addition and new discoveries.
The Maldivian cuisine is therefore now the ideal description and synthesis of the delicately blended Indian, Arabic, Sri Lankan and Oriental tastes into a perfectly unique cuisine that constitutes a genuinely Maldivian culinary identity.
Other foreign cuisines, such as Thai and continental cuisine, are also available in the different resorts on the islands of the Maldives, apart from the various cuisines listed above. There is more than one restaurant and café to choose from in most of these resorts. The Maldivian cuisine retains its unique and idiosyncratic flavor with a long-lasting impact, despite the strong influence of other cuisines on the island.
If you’re worried that your figure could be ruined by Maldivian cuisine for a nice swim at the beach, you can go for a light snack in the resorts’ coffee shops.
In addition, if you spend your holiday in one of the many live-aboard vessels in the Maldives, you will certainly discover the dishes served by the restaurants. It would be impossible to find pork dishes and alcoholic beverages because the Maldives is a Muslim country, so it would be a good idea to visit one of those live-aboard ships in the Maldives if you want the dishes prohibited on the island.
The best place to visit is the island’s capital, Male, if you are looking for a different experience.
In addition to continental, traditional, and some local dishes, the majority of hotels, guesthouses, and restaurants in the capital serve eastern and western specialties.
If you look forward to savoring the local flavors, the coffees in the capital, more commonly known as hotaa, are the perfect spot.
Even, without trying out the hedika-the Maldivian short eats, you can never experience the Maldives holiday entirely.
Only in the Maldives can many of these be sampled and they come in spicy, sweet and sour varieties.
Indeed, a combination of culture, individuality, uniqueness, and perfection is the taste of a Maldive holiday.
Look around the island and what you can see is a perfect beauty to be discovered while visiting the Maldives and visiting each and every restaurant, and what awaits you is the cuisine that your very own taste buds have yet to discover.
That is the perfect taste of a holiday in the Maldives!
