at Tiko’s Floating Restaurant
(see most recently 10.192 Rourou Moci)
Mission to Fiji, Day 4.
- Day 1 (10.217 Stir-Fried Salt and Pepper Tofu)

- Day 3 (10.219 Roast Chicken Tikka Masala)
In Suva. Here for the Fifth Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentarian Forum on Global Health – first to finalize preparations, then to facilitate the event itself, which will begin 7 days from now. This will be the fifth and final trip to Fiji in relation to the meeting (see previously 10.192 Rourou Moci).
With great fondness, I recall having dinner at this restaurant on the final night of my first visit to Suva (see generally 5.179 Mama Kokoda with Deep-Fried Taro Root). On the final night of what likely may be my final visit to Suva, I am happy to end it here.
As of tonight, I have instituted and immediately implemented a new personal rule of duty travel restaurant dining: if fresh lobster is available on the menu, order it. When traveling for work – so-called “duty travel” – we all deserve lobster.
