Dive head first into the exquisite flavours of Cantonese cuisine, simply by stopping at the Grand Canton Restaurant, situated in Port Louis. The restaurant opened its doors in May 2011, in all its oriental charm and splendour, and it specialises in Cantonese cuisine and Dim Sum. If the name is not familiar to you, Dim Sum is the Cantonese term for a type of dish that involves small individual portions of food, usually served in a small steamer basket or on a small plate.
The restaurant’s menu includes unique entrées, like an unusual jellyfish salad. You might want to try the fish maw soup, considered a delicacy in Chinese cuisine on par with shark fin, though less expensive.
Alternatively, you can choose from a range of meat dishes, including beef, pork, chicken and fish, all served with steamed rice. If you are into clay pots and sizzling dishes, how about the aubergine and salt fish claypot or the sizzling Cantonese style bean curd, right off the grill! You are a vegetarian? No problem. The restaurant has a range of vegetarian delicacies.
