If the visit to the Central Market in Port Louis is not quite your thing due to hygiene standards, try visiting the small market located in the modern new building at Victoria Station instead. It is a significant transportation hub from where buses depart to all over the island, and there is also a stop for a modern and air-conditioned tram, which can take you to the towns of Quatre Bornes or Curepipe.
The small market inside the transportation terminal consists of several stalls offering fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as several stalls offering food to go.
The most common items on offer are filled flatbreads, such as dholl puri with a variety of tempting fillings, as well as classic roti. A roti filled with a vegetarian mixture will cost you around 15 MUR, which is just under 0.30 EUR.
In the middle of the market, you may also come across several mini vendors who sell only a small amount of what they have just prepared. On my way to Flic en Flac, I bought several pieces of traditional gâteaux piments and other snacks this way. In addition, there is a large Winners supermarket located on the ground floor of the terminal where you can buy gourmet souvenirs to take home.

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.
