Shangrila Restaurant: Authentic Sichuan cuisine @ Garden Village, Curepipe.

Hi guys,
Can you believe we’re only a few weeks away from 2015!!
I’m really excited and can’t wait for the new opportunities that await us.
But for now, I am really happy to share this amazing new restaurant with you.
It is an authentic Sichuan (province found in the southwest of China) restaurant.
It is unlike any Chinese cuisine that can be found in Mauritius.
The owners and cooks are all from Sichuan and are all very friendly.
The restaurant manager is a lovely young lady called Sue.
She is very helpful and is always ready to assist.
I was invited to have a meal there a few weeks ago and you know
how I can’t say no to food! Lol So I gladly accepted.
As I know nothing about this type of food, I asked Sue if she could
choose a few dishes for me.
They currently have 2 menus: 1 of them is the full-colour glossy paged menu
that beautifully showcases their specialty Sichuan food and they also
created a second “Mauritian-Chinese” menu to be able to give people the option
to have food they are used to if they are not feeling adventurous to have Sichuan cuisine.
But in my honest opinion, if you’re going to an authentically asian restaurant,
you’d be dumb to order Mauritian style food. If you want that, just go to your local snack lol.

Here is their beautiful menu.
As for drinks, Sue suggested this Chinese health tea.
It was very refreshing and to our taste buds, I swear it tastes
exactly like black grass jelly (la mousse noire) minus the jelly!!
This is the first dish I tried.

The fish MELTS as soon as you put it in your mouth.
It is drizzled with a succulent garlic dressing which pairs
perfectly with the fish.
The fish is coated with an extremely light egg batter which gives the fish
an unexpected crunch. This is to die for!!
Veggies cooked to perfection ~ tasty and crunchy.
This is their version of the traditional chicken spring roll.
The batter was absolutely wonderful, light and crisp unlike the thick
yellow crust that we usually get with local “hakkien”.
Vegetables are also still crisp inside.
Seafood fried rice.
What I love about their fried rice is that it’s almost dry.
And I think that is what differentiates it from the local fried rice
which is moist and quite soggy at times. Differently worth a try.
Vegetable fried noodles and can you believe it,
they make their own noodles from scratch!!
Sichuan pork with peppers and other spices.
This prawn dish is served with a light, tasty broth
and is covered in glass noodles.
How beautifully does it look!! 🙂
They have just created a new Facebook page so please go check it out
and like it 🙂

  1. Good morning, how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because through them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately, it is impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are very small countries with very few population, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this, I would ask you one small favor:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Mauritius? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Mauritius in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
    28902 Getafe (Madrid)

    If you wish, you can visit my blog where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally, I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
