One of the most popular and typical Mauritian "Street food" - the "Dhal Puri" stalls.Used to be nearly on every street corner of the capital but not due to new (since a year) local legislations they are not so much "on the streets" but you an find them in more "organized" locations in somewhat more hygienic conditions, Anyway, the classic...

Went here after seeing a long line of locals out the front. Delicious! Abit of a wait due to the popularity but definitely get the farata (roti) as it is made fresh in front of you (dholl pouri is good but not as fresh). I had vegetarian and chose the ingredients I usually love- pickled veg, red rougaille sauce, green/brown... More

If you are visiting Mauritius, try "Dhal puris" @ the central market in Port Louis. I'm sure you will love the food.

The dholl puri is a signature dish of Mauritius. Locals love it, so do tourists. 2 dholl puris will keep you full for 4 hours. You may like to drain them down with alouda, also available near the stalls, in the market.

Dholl puris are not only tasty and cheap but also a balanced diet!!!! If someone visits Mauritius a taste of this quick meal/snack is a must! Dholl puris are a type of farata stuffed with dholl gram served with a variety of 3 vegetables and chilli or chutney. Of course the chilli is optional and the dholl puris can be... More

Yummy dholl puris with good filling. I seldom go there. My son likes to buy dholl puris there. Clean and not very oily, recommended.

I have been a fan of the various Dholl Puri stalls during my business visits in Port Louis. I regularly had Dholl puris which costed just MUR 12/- for breaskfast. I sometime gulped them one after the another changing different stalls just to try out a different taste. The fish curry which was added was just the most magnificent part... More
