what’s to eat #29

Fried pastries are a delicate matter, both literally and figuratively. people are particular, even passionate, about things like flakecrumb, and chew, and granulated versus powdered sugars. Families, cities, entire nations insist upon their unique patisserie, the best onethe only onethe right way.

There’s no sense arguing; just keep chewing.

I present to you the humble bombolouni of Sidi Bou Said, in Tunisia:

Tunis Tunisia man eat bomboloni bombalouni donut smile

Ragged edges, thick crunch, airy interior, served piping hot between pastry papers,

To be eaten with gusto, and gratitude.

    The Bambaloni shop in Sidi Bousaid is the best in the whole world, you can see that on the smile on my face, and on the bambaloni itself. 🙂
