The Rodriguan gastronomy (enriched by Chinese, Indian and European influences) is made up of local produce that is naturally available in abundance. Dishes made with fish, octopus, pork and chicken are of incomparable flavour. The cuisine consists of simple but tasty dishes that bring out the natural good taste of the produce. A typical Rodriguan meal is served with rice or maize and red beans, and is accented with chilli or chutneys.
