Breakfast in Samoa

Like most of the Pacific islands I have visited, Samoa is a fecund, fertile land, overflowing with a bounty of fruit, vegetables, animals and children. (In fact 40% of their population is under 14.)

In the fruit stakes, it was the land of coconuts, papaya (both Hawaiian and Samoan varieties), five types of lime including one with amazing skin, (above) and awesome bananas (a small finger sized variety with lots of flavour).

So breakfast was good, across all three resorts we stayed in, and here is a selection of my favourite breakfasts.

If I had to pick a winner, it would be the Coconut Crepes (middle centre), because of the sauce... I can only hazard a guess as to the secret ingredients - I think there's cream cheese in there somewhere amongst the coconuts.

The Banana Fritters with Rum Sauce (middle right) were a close second for me; though Craig seemed most fond of the Hawaiian Paniolo Cowboy Breakfast (bottom right).

The Banana Muffins with Papaya Jam (bottom centre) deserve a mention - the jam was amazing.
