Upon closer inspection, the food I had was not really Fijian, but Indian. Didn't realize they served Indian food in Fiji.
The first food I sampled from the cart was a chicken sandwich infused with Italian seasonings. Apparently, this was Rens' way of incorporating more of the menu implied from her business card: espresso and sandwiches. The sandwich was quite good; a subtle Italian spice jab to the mouth never hurt anyone.
Now what about these curries? Fish? Lamb? Chicken? Yeah, she's got all of those. Fish is probably among the most popular choices, but since that would take a while to prepare, I opted to sample the lamb curry. Initially, Rens showed slight concern, noting it had some spice. I quickly assured her it wouldn't be a problem, as long as 50 ghost peppers didn't lay inside to dissect my digestive system.
The lamb was tender, juicy, and delicious. The meat cooked in a blend of spices and a comforting sauce for about 45 minutes. I oped for the lamb curry here ($7). More tender lamb and perfectly softened potatoes. An idea blend of curry seasonings blanket the palate.

The yogurt sauce here (combining plain yogurt, chiles, and cucumber) provides that refreshing contrast against the curries.
