After a few weeks in the boondoks eating rice, kaukau (sweet potato) and tinpis (tinned fish), travellers will find the Moresby dining options a blessing. However, there's little to fill the void between kai bars (PNG-style fast food) and pricey restaurants.

The largest and best-stocked supermarkets are at Harbour City and Vision City.

Waigani

All the Waigani dining options, bar Duffy's, are located inside Vision City, Moresby's semi-glitsy shopping mall. Owned by a Malaysian logging company, the mall has been boycotted by eco-minded residents.
