Great cheap vegan food in Port Louis - Edit

A great option for vegan food in Port Louis. Large portions for very little money. Mostly Asian-style food. It's a short walk from the cathedral, tucked in a small street with a narrow storefront; the Google Maps directions are accurate.

Great little Chinese Cafe! - Edit

This is a Chinese cafe in Port Louis, as far as I know it's the only vegan cafe in Mauritius. It is a great little place, I couldn't read the menu and the staff didn't speak English, so I was lucky that a patron helped me order. From what I could make out you either get a rice or noodle stir fry with the option of having dumplings with soup or chutney. I got the rice dish and it was yummy, they had put fake meats on top and some pineapple and some lovely crunchy bits which I didn't know what they were! Again from what I could gather from the patron who helped me was that the place was vegan, although they gave me some candy (not made by them) at the end that had milk in it, but I certainly didn't think that the food I eat had any animal products in it. The staff were lovely and gave me a dessert to take away at the end for free, which was lovely. This is a basic cafe with a limited menu so don't come expecting anything swish, but it is fantastic to have this place on the island as there aren't many veggie places and the food was tasty!

This place can be found by using Google Maps.

Pros: Cheap, Vegan, Nice staff

Cons: Staff don't speak English, Basic

Decent place to eat. - Edit

I stumbled upon the place by chance, having wandered down from the top of Le Pouce (the local mountain) via the forest path and was excited that I'd found a place that nobody else had. I wasn't right on this front, but it was a fortuitous discovery.

It was very busy when I arrived, so I had to queue for about ten minutes to be served. Once I was, I relied on pointing at another customer's food as it was the first place I've come across in Mauritius hat nobody speaks a single word of English (the menu is, but I wanted exactly what somebody else had, which was a customised dish).

Food was basic Chinese-influenced, but it is all vegan (handy when communication is a challenge!). It's also stupidly cheap - under USD4 for what I had.

I'd happily go back again.

Pros: Decent food, Very cheap, The chili pots

Cons: Can be very busy

Humble and delicious chinese food - Edit

Situated in a small lane off St Denis Rue, the cafe is so inconspicuous that even the cab driver couldn't locate it at first even after calling the cafe. So it's wise to get a cab driver to bring you there. But it was worth the search.

Not knowing what to expect, we decided to order something small ie a one person portion of soup with a mixture of veg siew mai (steamed dumplings),stuffed tofu and veg balls and some tomato ketchup on top. Wow! We were hooked! The soup was flavorful and the ingredients were delicious! We have not eaten such yummy veg food in Singapore yet. The combination was fantastic! The prices were very cheap and value for money. So we decided to order more of siew mai, tofu, veg balls, fried rolls and fried mee as takeaways for our dinner that night back at the hotel. And save on an expensive dinner at the hotel.

The fried rolls were crispy and packed with veggies but sinful which applied to all fried foods :-)

Fried mee was packed to the max in a styrofoam box so you can imagine how big the portion is. Lots of wok hei flavor inside, if you enjoy chinese stir-frying.

Pros: Delicious, Cheap, value for money, friendly staff

Cons: hard to find location, Staff doesn't know how to speak English
