Do you sometimes dream of waking up on a tropical island within walking distance of the métro? Well, either find yourself a good psychiatrist, or float on down to the genuine taste of Mauritius—in Verdun, no less! Lapped by the waves of the Indian Ocean, this little island off the east coast of Malagasy is home to a centuries-old tradition of cultural mélange: English, French, Chinese, Creole. The result? A cuisine that is anything but boring. In exchange for embarrassingly little Canuck coin, sit back and enjoy this spicy, hot, perfumed hybrid served in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The TV is tuned to any old channel. Coffee table books on Mauritius to feast your eyes, too. Smack dab in the middle of beautiful downtown megalopolitan Verdun. BYOB. Free homemade island fries and salsa dip as appetizer.

Sample menu: Seafood imperial rolls, samosas, chicken croquettes, chili cake, vermicelli soup with rice and chicken, beef-tongue roast, octopus in tomato sauce, lamb curry with steamed rice and chefs salad, jell-0, apple pie.
