It would only be right to get stuck into some tasty Tunisian cuisine whilst you’re here. This country’s cuisine takes its influences from many, with flavours flowing from Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Arabic styles of cooking. A melting pot of influences only makes for a simply unique style of cuisine with an interesting variety of flavours. Fragrant spices are hugely popular in these regions, so you’ll find many seasoned meats with flavours like cumin, coriander and saffron regularly on restaurant menus around town. These dishes are commonly accompanied by fluffy couscous and a spicy side of harissa hot paste. This fiery, garlic infused condiment is enough to tickle the taste buds that’s for sure. Seafood dishes are also popular by the shores! Freshly caught fish is often served in a simmering stew seasoned the traditional Tunisian way. Or, for a more refreshing lunch you can opt for a salad, this nation holds its salads highly in terms of cuisine. Lightly dressed and served with warm, fresh breads, it’s the perfect lunch for those sunny days spent soaking up the sun.
If you simply can’t resist a sweet treat, you’re in safe hands here. There are plenty of Middle Eastern-style desserts to sink your teeth into. Pastry treats are super popular here and normally contain generous helpings of honey with finely chopped nuts.
