Fresh seafood is one of the high points of Cape Verde. Tuna and Wahoo are their most common fishes, dishes made from these are readily available. Other popular dishes are:
Lagostada – a dish made from lobster
Tostamista – a common toasted ham and cheese sandwich.
European food is also common on all the islands. Italian is especially popular on Sal. Vegetarians can ask for omelettes or salads.
