Last night, eight of us went to the Am. Sam. equivalent of a resort. It was outstanding. Le Falepule is a small inn/lodge (six rooms) built high up in the hills of Am. Sam. A view from the porch.The inside lobby. It is owned and operated by a husband and wife team who also have full time jobs outside running Le Falepule. This means that they do not serve dinner every night, and is more based on reservations and the availability of Isabel (the co-owner) to cook. Based on the stories I have heard, it is easier to get a reservation for dinner at Spago then Le Falepule. Luckily, Sharon was able to get us a reservation. For the main dish, we had chicken curry and shrimp curry along with fresh pineapple and a cucumber-tomato salad. It was really good, clearly the best eating I have had on the lava rock. The Aussies gave it the thumbs up.Everyone ate themselves to capacity and we didn't leave any leftovers.Already looking forward to my next meal at Le Falepule.
