Local food is an integral part of any area and an excellent way to understand a region. Two of the region's favourite ingredients are tomatoes and seafood. Don't wrap up your time in Tunisia without tasting mesfouf (couscous) as well as tabil (spice mixture). Finish off with asida (sweet gruel pudding), a local dessert. After your meal, take your partner out for a nice glass of wine in a bar that serves regional wines. Order Coteaux d’Utique or Coteaux de Carthage. To wrap up your dinner like a local, ask for some cedratine (lemon liqueur) and sit back after a full day of sightseeing. If you feel as though you'd like something refreshing, tea is a popular option.
