Mauritius Island a Perfect Place for Foodies – A Buffet of Taste and Flavours

Spicy, sweet, sour and juicy, name your craving and it’s served on a platter in Mauritius. This idyllic, little island in East Africa is not to be underestimated. It is home to merely a million people, yet once explored a million more tastes and flavours are revealed. Among those who influenced the culture, landscape and food are the Indians, Chinese, Africans and French. Quite a handful you might say. But wait until you step onto the streets and restaurants simply to indulge in the amazing variety of food. Why not also plan a long stay at InterContinental Mauritius Resort Balaclava Fort. This idyllic Mauritius resort will definitely ignite a passion for food that will take you beyond the confines of where you are staying.

Dholl Puri. If you don’t sample it in Mauritius, you should be ashamed to say you visited the island. It is practically akin to their national dish. The dish consists of delicious, crispy flat bread served with yellow split peas, bean curry and chutney. It won’t be much of a surprise that the island is also extremely popular for its seafood preparations. Prawns, fish, cuttlefish and even octopus are in abundance in this idyllic island.

Chillies, chillies and more chillies. In Mauritius, chillies are sprinkled onto every single dish. Even the heavenly pineapples and mangoes are served with a handful of chillies. You will definitely enjoy the fiery party in your mouth.

The food in Mauritius tastes brilliant particularly because the soil in the island is extremely fertile. You can purchase fresh produce in many parts of the island, but don’t forget to visit the massive market at Port Louis. Rose Hill is another amazing market located in close proximity to Port Louis. Schedule a lengthy visit to the markets and attempt to re-create a few dishes you have already sampled in Mauritius.

Pamper your taste buds to the fullest!
