Tunis medina

Tunisian food can be best described as a blend of Mediterranean and native Punics-Berber cuisines and is heavily based on seafood, meat, olive oil, tomatoes, and an abundance of spices like cumin, caraway, coriander, and paprika. Harissa, a spicy red pepper paste, is used on everything from sandwiches to seasoning a variety of dishes. Slata michwya (grilled pepper salad) is another condiment that is widely popular.

Popular dishes include: Brik à l’oeuf: This is a starter that consists of a lightly cooked egg inside a filo pastry with different variations that include prawns or tuna fish; Chorba: This is another starter common in Tunisia. It is a creamy soup made from tomatoes, onions and pasta grains; Couscous: This is the national dish of Tunisia and is eaten throughout the country. It is a dish of semolina that is served with vegetables, lamb, poultry or fish. Couscous differs in taste depending on the unique ingredients used; Agneau à la gargoulette: Another popular meal in Tunisia, it is a lamb stew that has been cooked over a charcoal fire in an earthenware vessel; Tunisian Tajine: It is more like a frittata. It is an egg-based appetizer that is made with meat and cheese or vegetarian; Makroudh: This is a fried semolina cake that is stuffed with date paste; Baklava: A very popular dessert in Tunisia, Baklava is a flaky pastry flavoured with almonds and honey. Lastly, Mint tea is the traditional drink of the Tunisian people, sometimes served with pine nuts or blanched almonds.
