(Food – Creole style in Reunion)
Creole cuisines, as witnessed during a weeklong visit last year, is heavily influenced by a blend and fusion of different styles of preparing food, with a heavy influence from China, India and Madagascar, as well as the African mainland. A mouthwatering prospect surely for visitors to the island, besides the natural attractions the island offers from pristine beaches to the rugged interior of volcanic origin, from white water rafting to paragliding to deep sea fishing or watching whales and dolphins.
iPhone users and owners of Android smartphones can download an application dedicated to the island which gives access to a range of useful information of where to eat, where to stay, where to go and what to do while in Reunion.
