Last week I was travelling to Rose Hill
Just to let you know, Rose Hill is a town where you can see lots of shops and kinda like a shopping centre. It’s one long road and you can see shops on your left and right side. I don’t have the pics though. But i will post them later. Here, there is my favorite food that I usually eat.
Yes! Confit! That’s how they said it here. What is that?
MANY VARIATIONS OF FRUITS, SOAKED OR NATURAL
This is how they usually sell it. Don’t be weird…what is that black watery thing?? It’s tamarin juice. So instead of vinegar, they soak all the fruits in tamarin juice. The seller, that I usually buy, have lots of different local fruits. From the left to right : mango, yam or jicama, white cucumber (super hugeeee one…the local cucumber is like that..), pineapple (they called it ananas) and olive.
So, as you can see, I’m zooming to the cucumber there. They have the same size as the pineapple, which, mind you, is not that big also. They have the same size as the honey pineapple that we have in Indonesia.
I love this one! They are sweet and sour. Perhaps because of the tamarin juice also. But let’s not be weird about it. It’s not some black water from somewhere we don’t know. Lol!
They also tend to give you tamarin sauce again after they take it from the jar.
This olive is the dried one, that’s why it has a black colored skin. The soaked one is mostly green colored skin.
It tastes very sour and will wake you up…lol!
And then, they will give you chili paste (they called it piment). They offer mostly green chilli but some can propose red chili also.
I can’t recommend you a seller because they usually move here and there. My favorite, beside pineapple, is jicama and cucumber. You can find this either on the streets alongway Rose Hil or Port Louis, Count it as a dessert after lunch!
