Port Louis has a great eating scene, in which the ethnic diversity of the city comes up trumps. As the middle classes tend to live outside the city, many places are only open for lunch – head to Le Caudan Waterfront in the evenings and on weekends.
The Central Market, Chinatown and the bus stations provide happy hunting grounds for street-side nibbles, but you'll find stalls all over town selling samousas (samosas), gâteaux piments (chilli cakes), farata (roti bread) and dhal puri (lentil pancakes). The general rule is to queue behind the longest line – word travels fast and everyone seems to know who's serving the best grub.
Le Caudan Waterfront
There's a wide variety of restaurants and cafes in Le Caudan complex, from bustling food courts to upscale seaside dining options.
