With a melting pot of influences ranging from the Mediterranean to Arabian, Turkish and even Italian – this country’s cuisine certainly contains some incredible flavours. So you can be sure to encounter some unique dishes on your Tunisia travels. The locals here love to use freshly sourced ingredients in their cooking, meaning many dishes include olive oils, fresh fish, a variety of meats and plenty of tomatoes. If you’re seeking an authentic Tunisian feast, we’d recommend ordering chorba as your starter, a creamy soup dish that’s made using juicy tomatoes, seared onions, pasta and grains. It’s a local’s favourite and we’re pretty sure you’ll love it too. It wouldn’t be a traditional feast without the addition of the national dish of Tunisia, couscous, which is a staple in kitchens across the country, typically accompanying many meaty mains and delicious salads in restaurants. If you’re a lover of Middle Eastern cuisine you have to try the famous Tunisian tajine whilst you’re here. A twist on many traditional tajines, this egg-based appetizer typically includes seasoned meat chunks and layers of cheese to form a frittata style treat. Trust us on this one, you’ll be going back for seconds that’s for sure. Last but by no means least, top it off with a slice of Baklava, this flaky pastry is flavoured with ground almonds and honey for a gorgeous sweet treat that is bound to get the taste buds tingling! Mint tea is also super popular here and it’s a great refreshment to enjoy after your meal. Beer lovers should be sure to cool off with a pint of the local brew, Celtia. Not only is it cheap, it’s the perfect way to cool off from a long afternoon at the beach too.
