Food and local cuisine
Local cuisine in the Seychelles is based on the culinary traditions of Creole, whose main ingredients are rice and seafood. Keep in mind that local cuisine is extremely spicy. The national dish of the country is pwason ek diri (fish and rice). The menu always contains typical fish delicacies, such as the juicy red snapper (bourzwa), tuna steaks (the king of fish) and chatini shark fillets, while in extremely rare cases parrot meat fillets are served. Shrimp and octopuses, cooked in many variations, have the honor of them, as well as soups (tektek soup). Do not forget to try the typical delicacy chauve-souris (Fruit Curry).
The best season to visit Seychelles
Ideally choose the period May-June and mid-September to mid-November for an enjoyable, pleasant and comfortable trip to the Seychelles. Although temperatures throughout the year range between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius, the aforementioned periods are considered the coolest.
