Aux Délices de l’Orient is a well known Chinese restaurant in Saint Denis. Here we introduce you its little brother La Barquette, held by chef Anthony, son of the big boss !
They propose fewer dishes than Aux Delices de l’Orient, but on the menu of La Barquette you can find everyday some classics : fried noddles, fried rice, “bol renversé”, deep fried chicken, veggie menu, salad. And also occasionally some special dishes like pineapple beef, ginger fish, sautéed chicken & veggies. You can either eat in or take away. Finally, it’s important to mention that everything cooked is MSG free.
In our opinion, Aux Délices de l’Orient and La Barquette are among the few Chinese restaurants in Reunion that won’t disappoint you. We will maybe name some other places in a special article ! 🙂
What to order at La Barquette ? Everyone will have its own preference, but we do love the deep fried squids and the “bol renversé”. You must also try : yellow fish balls (hard to find in other Chinese restaurants) and the cantonese rice of “délices” !
