Tunisian food is a wonderful mix of flavors, combining French and Italian with North African. In traditional restaurants in Tunisia, visitors find the dishes are always served with lots of bread, free of charge, and a snack or starters as well. The following dishes reflect the Tunisian culture and are beloved by many.


Found on most restaurant menus in Tunisia, brik is a famous and traditional dish. Some street shops serve it, or a version of it as well. Brik is a fried pastry stuffed with egg, parsley and tuna. It’s served with lemon. The best brik is when the egg is not cooked too long and the yolk spills out when cut into. It’s traditionally eaten from the middle inward. Patrons take small bites until they reach the egg and then let the yolk spill out to enjoy it with the rest of the meal. The shape can vary but it’s usually a triangle shape, similar to a thin calzone. Different varieties are made with a multitude of fillings, including cheese, potatoes or shrimp. This traditional dish is served as the second course during Ramadan.


The mechouia salad is traditional. This “red” salad is made of grilled sweet peppers, tomatoes and onions mixed with oil, lemon, tuna fish and hard-boiled eggs. To some this combination might not sound appealing, but, on the internet, many travelers rave about this salad. It can be cooked spicy so it’s best to ask the chef or restaurant about the dish’s heat before ordering. It’s usually served alongside a dish or as part of a dish.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
