POP-UP: Mauritian Street Food Festival

|Recurring Event (See all)

NEW! Street Food Sunday Pop Up – March 23 & 30

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 many different parts of the world migrating to the island, each contributing new ingredients and techniques. The result is a vibrant street food culture that offers a flavourful fusion of East Indian, African and Chinese influences with distinctive French and English twists.

In celebration of Mauritius Independence Day (March 12), Chef Vanesha Khadaroo is proud to showcase her tradition-inspired, authentic island street food at The Depanneur as part of an exciting new addition to our lineup.
