P has introduced me to Lucy's Divine Cafe for a fix of Mauritian cuisine. The cafe part of Lucy's is an off shoot from their already well established bakery. We would typically buy a selection of home style foods as a take away for Sunday lunch and have enough for leftovers at night. Here is an idea of what they serve:
Gateau arouille and gateau piment. I love their gateau arouille which are taro root fritters. They are super crunchy with a hint of ginger and sweetness. Kiddo loves their gateau piment which are spicy chickpea fritters.

For mains, we order the usual suspects: beef briyani which came with boiled eggs (love this way of serving) and...
...fried rice with chicken and...
...a beef curry with roti.
To accompany the mains, we got mango and...
...mixed vegetable achar which was more than plenty to keep for the remainder of the week. Verdict: We loved it.
Most of the mains are less than $15 and the serving sizes are generous. The briyani and the gateau arouille are definitely a drawcard. If you are curious about Mauritian food, this is a good place to try.
