If you hadn’t guessed before, one of my favorite cuisine in Mauritius is Chinese. I shared with you the wonderful Dim Sums we had at Grand Ocean City a while back, and today I wanted to tell you about one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in Curepipe.
I spent my whole childhood in Curepipe, it is a town I know well, and although restaurants are opening and closing all the time, this one has been there since as far as I can remember.
So whenever I want to have a nice chinese meal when I am in Curepipe, I go to the Chinese Wok.
The entrance to the restaurant is on the Royal road, to the left of ‘La Mascotte’ shop. You have to go up some stairs and it is on the first floor.
The restaurant is cozy and has a warm atmosphere, where you feel at ease.
Everything on their menu is just wonderful.
When I’m with a friend, I usually like to order the Chinese noodles or the ‘bol renversé’ (here they don’t call it ‘chicken upside down‘!).
When we are a larger group though, what we like to do is to order some Chinese fried rice, and four or five different dishes. In this way, everyone can have a bit of everything.
Accompanied of course by a nice garlic sauce and the most wonderful crushed chilli!
I usually eat too much (well, yeah, I’m a bit greedy, when there’s food that I like…), but I also feel great about the wonderful meal I just had!
