on the fly (2/2)
Remember, last week we offered you some good sweet addresses. Today, we propose to delight you with savoury: here are two small authentic restaurants that serve fresh and local products.
MOZ at Baie Mahault
This small canteen with its half-urban, half-creole decoration has become in a very short time an unmissable spot in the village. After studying in various restaurants abroad, Margaux returned from Australia with one idea in mind: to open Moz on the island of his childhood. Here, we eat very well all year round. Thibault Barbafieri, Top Chef 2018, is developing an ultra-fresh and inventive cuisine that gives pride of place to local fishing and seasonal vegetables. On the spot or to take away (biodegradable packaging), the local clientele jostle at lunchtime to taste the day’s healthy recipes or just have a good Barista coffee. An invitation to unwind in a pleasant setting.

SOOPASOUP in Sainte-Anne
Laurence Rugard launched her concept of Ayurvedic soups two years ago. She starts on the beach and then installs a container in her garden. She then installs stools and tables in the shade of the trees as the customers stay at the bar and chat. The recipe is very simple: a soup served in a Kwi (traditional container) made from organic vegetables or bought from small producers, toppings of your choice (shrimps, wassous, fish, chicken etc) and crunchy vegetables. The heat of the soup allows a better digestion of the raw vegetables. It’s light, good for the body and it’s great fun. In addition, sweet potato and Madeira fries are offered, a delight! Special mention for homemade juices: turmeric, lemon, ginger or pineapple, basil. Sometimes it’s easy to make yourself feel good.
