Tunisia: Food and Drink

Tunisia has many culinary influences and dining out in Tunisia offers many tastes and options. Couscous is the Tunisian staple of the original Berber people and the national dish. The long coast means fresh seafood plays a major role in Tunisian cuisine. In cities and larger towns, the French legacy is ever present, whether in styles of cooking or specific dishes, as is a taste for sweet and often exotic pastries. Tunisia is famed for its prized dates. Wine is widely available, despite being a Muslim country and Tunisia has a long history of wine production.
