An homage to the eclectic cuisine of Mauritius – an exciting mix of Creole, Indian and Chinese influences –Rougail de L’Île Maurice boasts some of the most diverse flavours in town. Start with classic small bites like niouk nien (a popular Mauritian street food of meatballs with chayote, chicken and beef) and halim (a lentil-based soup with cumin and barley). And continue with deliciously exotic main dishes like octopus curry, chicken biryani (an aromatic dish of chicken marinated in cumin, yoghurt, saffron, coriander, mint and fried onion and cooked with basmati rice) or the must-try rougail de morue salé – a tasty stew of salted cod, tomatoes, herbs and spices.
