Durban’s Exotic Indian District

Durban’s Exotic Indian District

Durban has its own Indian district. Sadly they don’t have a catchy name like Chinatown, but they do have Victoria Street Market. Kurtas, saris, incense, other fabrics, spices and pretty much anything appropriately Indian is available here. The place is a thrill for the senses, with over a hundred and fifty stalls filling the air with sharp, spicy scents. Apart from spices, there’s a market for seafood, meat, fruits and vegetables. And naturally, the Indian atmosphere wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t get a chance to bargain so go ahead and test your negotiation skills against the vendors. The atmosphere here is heady with exotic energy. Close by, you’ll find the Grey Market, which has more Indian shops and architecture. Make sure you tuck into an Atom Bomb curry.

Tastes and Aromas of Traditional Durban

Tastes and Aromas of Traditional Durban

For lunch our most fun excursion was to Little Gujarat which serves maybe not the best Indian food in Durban but it was fantastic to sit among locals as we shared a thali and fried banana leaf between rotis. They also serve bunnychows which is the most famous food to come of Durban. It’s a hollowed out loaf of white bread stuffed with your choice of curry and whilst I have yet to try it I will say that it looks delicious.
