One of the places we eat quite often at the moment is Hong Kong Palace in Grand Baie.  My husband is of Chinese heritage M, so we eat Chinese food quite often. Now ongoing quality is quite a thing – or not! – in Mauritius. You cannot count on something being consitently good. But at the moment it is good.

On Good Friday, we don’t eat any meat, so last night was all seafoods and veggies!

One of the very traditonal Mauritian meals in Chinese restaurants is deep fried octopus, with salt and chili. You eat it with chili paste and vinegar with garlic.

Then we had steamed fish. The red Garoupa, called vieille rouge in Mauritius, is a local fish in Grand Baie and around the island obviously.  It has a firm flesh and a very clear taste. Best eaten steamed, with ginger and spring onions.

Our last dish was tofu and veggies. This dish is called Japanese Tofu – it is a very soft type of tofu, that is deep fried and served with oyster sauce.

All was very tasty, just a tiny bit to oily to my taste, but is often the case!

Happy Easter everyone! Don’t eat too much chocolate and remember to be thankful in these special times!
