Full description

Start your journey at Le Caudan Waterfront, and head away from the familiarity of tourist-friendly spaces. Walk through the bustling streets of Port Louis. Mauritius has some amazing food, influenced by its Indian, Chinese, and African cultures.

The central market is one of the best places to experience the best Mauritian food. For a taste of the Gujarati influence, you’ll find fresh, deep-fried gato pima, or chili bites. Made with soaked split peas, zingy spring onions, and green chilies, these really do pop in your mouth.

Next, travel through the gates of the Chinatown of Port Louis to discover treats derived from Hakka Chinese dishes. The tour includes about 8 different dishes to try.

  • Approximately 8 food tastings
  • A bottle of water
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off
  • Gratuities (optional)

Wonderful tour of Mauritian street stalls and snack bars, allowing us to taste an amazing amount of traditional cuisine that otherwise we would have never found or tried. In addition we got explanations if ingredients and cultural heritage. Best skip breakfast before the tour

We really enjoyed our tour and thought it was a great way to experience the local cultures and their history. Our guide, Chris, was very proud of his heritage and that helped to make the experience even more interesting. Come hungry on this tour because the portions are large and very filling!

Der Rundgang war Spitzenklasse und wir haben viele neue Eindrücke von Kultur und den verschiedenen kulinarischen Einflüssen auf das Essen in Mauritius gewonnen. Unser Guide Christophe war sensationell und konnte uns alle Fragen beantworten. Er hat uns auch an Orte geführt an die man als „normaler“ Tourist wohl nie hingegangen wäre. Absolut empfehlenswert!!
