Summer is not far away and soon we'll be seeing pictures from the most exotic locations all over our feed on facebook and instagram .
Have you planned your summer holiday yet?
Will you be visiting the following islands soon? If so,I've got you covered! Here are the foods that you shouldn't skip !


Mauritius

One of Mauritius's signature drinks, vanilla tea is made from the black tea that grows on the island and vanilla from South Africa.A refreshing drink that you shouldn't miss!
Mazavaroo is the most used ingredient in the mauritian cuisine.It's in fact a chilli paste made by the locals that is consumed with any dish, including veggies and even fruit(mango,pineapple,etc) .

Madeira

Grilled limpets splashed with a bit of lemon and garlic makes the perfect starter for those who love sea food.
Queijadas tops the list of the islands favourite dessert and it's made with cottage cheese, eggs and sugar.A very simple one,but extremely tasty.



Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is one of those islands that you want to visit again and again.
Vieja Fish with  canarian potatoes and mojo is a dish that you don't want to miss.
Vieja Fish is also known under the name of parrot fish and it's cooked in the oven with a lemon dressing.Canarian potatoes with mojo sauce were for sure my favourite dish while visiting Fuerteventura, they are actually boiled in sea water and left there until the water evaporates and the potatoe skin is covered in a salty crust.


Bali

If you will travel to Bali ,you will notice that the locals will use banana leafs as food wrappings.One of those foods are called Pepes and it consists in  small packages of banana leafs that have meat veggies and tofu inside. Bubur Injin is a dessert made of a black rice pudding and coconut milk and it's served either as a dessert or snack.


Malta

Cannoli are a must when visiting Malta, it consists in a fried pastry dough filled with ricotta cream.
Bagrioli is a dish that maltese swear by and it's made from beef cooked in a wine sauce ,with a bacon, egg and garlic filling.Can't wait to try it!
