2. Monday Market
If you visit the waterfront, near this place you will find the central foire de Mahébourg. It’s one of the famous markets here.It was initially famous for its silks and all the other textiles that they sell here but nowadays the tourists get a busy produce section, a kind of tacky bric-a-brac and the lined up steaming food stalls. The market is generally open on all the days in the week.
Just across from the market, this hero of a street-food scene will greet you with all its warmth. It’s just beside the petrol station. Here you get to taste the most delicious Biriyani of this Island (rice cooked with meat and fish in a steel pot with a variety of eastern spices) as well as equally tasty ‘kebabs’. The portions are huge and you can see the fishers and the hawkers queuing for their mid-day meals.
