It’s always wonderful when the destination you’re headed to is known for its delicious cuisine. Maldives particularly has delicious food on offer with a variety of tastes and textures that are tantalising and unforgettable. The food in Maldives is often traditional, with influences from India and Sri Lanka and the result is that the cuisine is distinct and very flavourful.
Popular food in Maldives depends typically on coconut, fish and a variety of starches. Thanks to the judicious use of spices, the food is tasty and even a little exotic. Some of the traditional dishes here include Boshi Mashuni, a banana flower salad that is crunchy, zingy and hot at the same time or Garudhiya, a fragrant fish soup that is fresh and clean with notes of citrus. Many people love the Saagu Bondibai, a light and delicious sago pudding sweetened with condensed milk or the Bis Keemiya, a curry puff filled with hardboiled eggs and spiced onions. Here are some of the Maldives restaurants which you should certainly look out for on your holiday to Maldives.
