Hungry? Find a Food Truck
It's an eight-hour flight from Los Angeles to Tahiti, and you land pretty late in the evening. As tempting as it is to eat a convenient dinner at a hotel or chain restaurant, don't. Instead, go into the city of Papeete, near the bay, where you can smell the food being served from food trucks, called "roulettes," along the streets. Eat fresh fish, rice and vegetables under the stars with local families. Not only are the meals cheaper from the backs of the trucks, but they're more authentic and simply better.
