An exclusive culinary experience in Mauritius

Islandian partners with Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa to bring one of the best restaurants in the world to the Mauritian shores.

It’s time for an exclusive culinary experience!




A gastronomic adventure 

Not only is the Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa an amazing holiday destination, it is also the home of the internationally-acclaimed The Test Kitchen. From the 11th of April to the 26th of May 2018, one of the top 100 restaurants in the world is hosted at the Republik Beach Club & Grill, for a unique six weeks’ culinary experience under the tropics.


Islandian, your tailor-made experiences designer 

In line with its vision to design bespoke island experiences, Islandian partners with the Resort’s culinary event inviting travelers to discover island cuisine as never before. The cuisine is a blend of customs, brought by those who first stepped foot on our Indian Ocean islands. The piquant spices, locally sourced ingredients, sea-to-fork dining and exquisitely crafted dishes are a feast for the senses. In magic surroundings, among the aromas of numerous spices, find out more about our experiences to unveil the secrets of local flavours. Feel free to savour the local bites like Dholl Puri, samosas or special fruit salad, and beware of the famous Gato-Piment, which can be spicy!


A taste of local flavours

Based in Cape Town-South Africa, The Test Kitchen is “a world-class dining destination that is worthy of a flight”, as described by the prestigious JHP Gourmet Guide. The prestigious restaurant has an international appeal and a waiting list of not less than 9 months for diners to be able to experience a unique culinary journey of 21 courses.
Along with its award-winning chef Luke Dale Roberts, the pop-up restaurant gives a taste of the concept with a tapas menu and a five-course menu, inspired by Luke’s journey around the world while aiming to showcase Mauritian savours at their best. There seems to be no stopping for chef Luke Dale-Roberts and his team. To mirror the eating house’s Dark Room and Light Room, gourmets are invited to start their evening at the Republik Bar area before continuing the meal at the beachfront restaurant, where the five-course gourmand menu is served. Local atchar, wild boar roll, Vielle rouge, herb fired tuna, Mauritian spiced “Kobe”, local honey or event slow cooked pork belly… many tasty dishes that capture the essence of island living.
