Boiled noodles are a type of food that you can commonly find in Mauritius, along with roti flatbreads, fried noodles and fried rice. It is an exceptionally tasty yet simple dish. The base of the dish is egg noodles, which are complemented by various types of mixtures. Boiled noodles are usually available with vegetables and chicken, beef or lamb, and can even include an egg.
The vegetable mixture often includes carrots, young corn, pak choi, and is topped with spring onions. In some bistros, a portion of boiled noodles is served with a thick chicken broth (which is also used for Mauritian dumplings boulettes).
One portion of mine bouillie with tender chicken and lots of vegetables costs 125 MUR, approximately 2.80 EUR, at the Nam Wah Snack bistro. This is a dish that you must try when visiting the island of Mauritius.

Accommodation in Mauritius
I wholeheartedly recommend the Seastar Hotel in Flic en Flac, just a short walk from a beautiful beach. The hotel is new, the breakfasts are great, and you almost always have an amazing hot tub on the roof terrace all to yourself! The last time I stayed here was in December 2022 and I will return again.
