Food and Drink

The street food is very popular with Indian and Asian influences. Try the Dhal Puri, a delicious flatbread filled with yellow lentils, it’s a staple across Mauritius. Fill the puris with curry and chutney to really experience the food like the locals. Once you’ve enjoyed a few of the local Phoenix beers, why not sample some of the local rum.
