Samoa: Toona’i Sunday Food Feast

On Sunday, there is also a traditional buffet-style lunch called toona’i, that includes a variety of truly unique local dishes – oka raw fish, roast pork, salted beef, boiled octopus, sour coconut milk wrapped in banana leefs, grilled parrot fish, and much more. Toana’i is a special day for Samoans – it is the lunch following the mandatory and obligatory Sunday church services and time when families gather together.
