Returning to the Dep by popular demand, Chef Vanesha Khadaroo has assembled another excellent menu of Mauritian street food.
Mauritius, a small island nestled in the Indian Ocean, is a melting pot of global cultures and traditions. Its long history has seen people from different parts of the world migrating to the island, each contributing new ingredients and techniques. It’s no wonder that Mauritian dishes feature flavourful fusions of East Indian, African and Chinese influences with French and English interpretations. Their spicy and colourful street food is some of the best in the world.
