During my trip I tasted Galabé at Tafia & Galabé, the shop located at the Bois Rouge sugar refinery in the East of Reunion Island.
I had another chance to try it at the Stella Matutina Museum shop in Saint-Leu, further south. This local product can also be found in the island’s fine-food stores.
Galabé is produced from sugarcane juice through a long, meticulous process. It has an original, subtle aroma, a honey-like texture and an exceptional taste that lingers in the mouth.
