Minn Bwi (Boiled Noodles)

What happens when a diverse Island cuisine merges with Asia? You get Mine Bouillie! Simply termed as boiled noodles served with a circus of flavors and an entire undiscovered appetite you thought you never had! A very popular dish in Mauritius and amongst the tourists! It is basically boiled noodles topped with ingredients like chicken, beef or eggs, seasoned with a bit of Chinese dark soy sauce fish sauce and garlic sauce. It is a re-invented Chinese dish that is bound to make you addicted! That is one dish which has all the vitamins your body needs. Green steamed veggies, eggs, pork sausage or chicken or beef, shrimps all up to your choice! Although we recommend trying it with either Pork or Chicken.

And what better place than ‘Pret a Manger‘ for eating the giant bowl of Mine Bouille? This is a special restaurant hidden in the Arcades Currimjee of Curepipe area and believe it, you will absolutely be begging for more! Pret a Manger is a small family run restaurant that serves the best Mine Bouille of Mauritius. A hundred percent value for money and the quantity you get in that giant bowl is worth a shot! You can ask them to serve you Mine Bouille either with Pork or chicken, do ask for special pork sausages if available and you will not be disappointed. We suggest trying it with a little bit of Bouillon (Noodle Broth) if you favor some soupy taste. The catching aromas of soy sauces , the hot steamy boiling broth and the long queues, The flavor in that bowl is so mystical, no wonder this place is the talk of the town! Just letting you know, if you plan to come to this restaurant, please do not have any prior meals! The quantity and taste is going to give you hunger pangs 🙂


A Warning. You will certainly be left wanting for more! Bon Apetit!
