Farin cuisine is known for its intense flavors, colorful decoration, and the great variety of spices used. Maize is a staple of the diet, being cheap and easy to produce even in dry climates. It is used in making pastes, broths, and tortilla which, along with pita bread, is used as a wrap. Most Farin meals are eaten as wraps. Chicken, beef, and lamb are the most common meats, but beans make an excellent substitute. Tomatoes, lettuce, onions, squash, chili peppers, avocados, sweet potatoes, papayas, pineapples, bananas, radishes, and cheese also find their way into wraps. Spicy sauces, sour cream, and guacamole further serve to enhance the already strong flavors. Brown rice is a popular side dish.

Alcohol is considered immoral and is thus uncommon in Farin and never served with a meal. Instead, Farin drink coffee (hot or cold), chocolate, milk, pineapple juice, or coconut milk. Sweet corn cake, flan, marzipan, and rice pudding with cinnamon are favorite desserts, although fresh fruit is preferable when possible. The most popular dessert fruits are watermelons, cantaloupes, pineapples, bananas, and grapes (including raisins). Sugarcane is also often chewed raw as a snack.
