For our guests we serve three freshly prepared meals per day from our homestay kitchen. In the afternoon we prepare some snack for you as well. You will find traditional Indonesian cuisine mixed with a little western influences. All meals are included in the price for accommodation.
Breakfast can be either sweet like banana pancakes/fresh fruits or savoury like rice with vegetables.
Like in the rest of Indonesia also in Papua the main food source for basically all meals is rice. This is true for our dishes, too.
Though rice is the main source of food, we like to vary our meals with different ingredients like potatoes or noodles for the happiness of our guests.
Traditionally Papua people have been fishermen. We regularly include fish into our cooking. We go fishing ourselves and can therefore guarantee the freshness of all fish served in our homestay.
Sometimes we serve chicken if available though it’s quite expensive in Raja Ampat. Please understand that we cannot guarantee huge portions of meat or fish for every meal.
Soy beans are an excellent source for protein and very popular in the Indonesian kitchen. Either as tofu or fermented as tempeh we prepare it in all different kinds of ways.
With the meals we usually provide cooked or fried vegetables depending on which ingredients the local market has available and especially how fresh these are. We give our best to put a smile on your face with our meals.
In the afternoon some snack is made freshly for you.
All meals are usually served in our sheltered dining area which can be used by all our guests. This is also the place where you can help yourself with drinking water, coffee and tea.
The dining shelter is right in front of the beach in the mangrove area. While having your meals you can see the whole beach and maybe even spot a jumping manta ray in the ocean or a dugong on our house reef having its meal at the same time.
