Dining with Culture

As they say, 'When in Rome', and when in Rotorua, take the opportunity to experience a variety of authentic Maori kai (Kai is the Maori word for food). Combining traditional Maori cultural entertainment with the exquisite and wholesome taste of pre-European cuisine, there are a number of excellent venues to experience the richness of the indigenous people of New Zealand.

From the traditional Hangi to sumptuous buffets offering the finest of New Zealand's bounty, including the Maori staple native root vegetable, the Kumara (sweet potato), an authentic Maori meal is a must in Rotorua.

The Hangi

An innovative method of cooking a meal for the whole tribe, the hangi is essentially an earth oven. Utilising hot rocks, steam, layers of blanketing and earth, the laying of a hangi is an intricate and time consuming process. But the outcome is a delectable delight, nurtured and cooked by the earth itself!

Choosing a sight, digging the pit, heating particularly chosen volcanic rocks, preparing and laying out the food, and timing the hangi to perfection are all unique skills handed down through generations. The hangi is a distinctive dining experience, a truly ancient way of feasting and is offered in all its flavoursome bounty to visitors to Rotorua today.
