In Sidi Bou Said, outside Tunis, a restaurant that must resemble heaven, considering the
grumpy service and tourist prices views.
Next to a gaggle of children blowing bubbles and making faces, I enjoyed a strong, capable, robust mint tea topped with earthy pine nuts and a few aromatic leaves.
And a hearty brik, hero of Tunisian street food: whisper-thin pastry dough stuffed with loose, runny egg and fried to perfection. sometimes also stuffed with tuna, or cheese, or potato, and often served with a wedge of lemon to squeeze over and balance the richness of the brik.
May you enjoy your snacks – and your weekend! – with smiles, and fried perfection.
