Sapasui: It’s hard to get wrong!

Sapasui: It’s hard to get wrong!

by Susan Paris

Carlos Vakalaloma has lots of interests. He likes playing rugby (he’s a prop) and doing jigsaw puzzles (the old-school kind with up to a thousand pieces). During lockdown, he also spent a lot of time cooking. Carlos really likes Italian food. But if he was forced to choose his favourite meal, to both cook and eat, he’d say sapasui. Sapasui is eaten all across the Pacific. The dish is a version of chop suey, which originally comes from China.
