Discover Mauritian cuisine Mauritius

Mauritian cuisine has been shaped by all of the different populations living on the island. Having said that, it is primarily based on a type of curry served with most meat, fish and even vegetable dishes. 'Rougaille', a sauce made using a variety of local tomato, onions, garlic and other condiments, can also be served as an accompaniment to all dishes. You'll also find here certain specialities from other lands, such as the Indo-Muslim biryani (a rice-based dish) and the Chinese 'mine frit' (fried noodles). When it's time for dessert, go for the 'napolitaine', a pastry formed of two biscuits filled with guava preserve, all wrapped in a candy pink coating!
