On his third trip to the In­dian Ocean is­land nation, Des­ti­nAsian’s ed­i­tor-in-chief learned there was still plenty to dis­cover in Mauritius, par­tic­u­larly when it came to eat­ing. “My big­gest sur­prise on this visit was just how thrilled I was to be back,” he says. “Of course, stay­ing at one of the is­land’s top re­sorts, the gor­geous Shangri-La’s Le Touess­rok, didn’t hurt. But when I did man­age to pull my­self away from my ocean­front room, Le Touess­rok also proved to be an ideal base for ex­plor­ing Mau­ri­tian cui­sine—which I would urge any­one to do. From oc­to­pus curry and palm­heart salad to dishes in­volv­ing lo­cal game and an em­bar­rass­ment of pro­duce, Mauritius’s mul­ti­cul­tural food of­fer­ings are im­pres­sive to say the least. I’d go back in a heart beat.”
