Siba Mtongana’s island food discoveries on her trip to Seychelles

 

Everything about Seychelles is so captivating and enthralling.

The amazing island nation is known to offer unforgettable experiences to tourists who flock to this place from all across the globe.

The unmistakable features, such as lush tropical vegetation, beautiful beaches, and a wide variety of marine life in this republic, result in a range of things to do and places to visit.

Talking about its beautiful beaches, celebrity chef Siba Mtongana was recently in Seychelles on a well-deserved holiday with her husband, Brian.

The couple was holidaying at the brand new eco-chic Exclusive Collection Resort Club Med Seychelles, which is located in a protected reserve and is a 220-hectare slice of paradise – a quick five-hour direct flight from South Africa with Air Seychelles.

And other than Mtongana thoroughly enjoying her time away in the paradise destination, as a bona fide foodie, she shared her island food discoveries and took us on a culinary journey that exposed us to indigenous items such as soursop, rambutans, and jackfruit.

In honour of her trip, for those considering a romantic or family getaway to Seychelles, here’s a menu sample of dishes to try when in the beautiful country.

They say the best way to truly experience a destination and immerse yourself in its culture is through its cuisine.

Snacks

Breadfruit

A staple in tropical countries, breadfruit has a similar taste to potatoes but with an amazing aroma of baked bread. In Seychelles, it is mostly made into mash or chips or roasted over an open fire. Grab yourself a pack of breadfruit chips to snack on and a glass of Buka rum to sip on while you explore the island.
