Moun of Tunis cuisine is extremely diverse, thanks to Morocco and Tunisa's interaction with other cultures and nations over the centuries. Moroccan and Tunisia cuisine has been subject to Berber, Moorish, Mediterranean, and Arab influences. The cooks in the royal kitchens of Tunis, Fez, Meknes, Marrakesh, Rabat and Tetouan refined it over the centuries and created the basis for what is known as Moroccan Tunisian cuisine today. Morocco and Tunisia produces a large range of Mediterranean fruits and vegetables and even some tropical ones.
Common meats include mutton and lamb, beef, chicken, camel, rabbit and seafood, which serve as a base for the cuisine. Characteristic flavorings include lemon pickle, cold-pressed, unrefined olive oil and dried fruits. It is also known for being far more heavily spiced than Middle Eastern cuisine. The main Moroccan and Moun of Tunis dish most people are familiar with is couscous, an old delicacy probably of Berber origin. Beef is the most commonly eaten red meat in Morocco and Tunisia. Lamb is preferred, but rarer due to its high price. North African sheep breeds store most fat in their tails, which means that Moroccan lamb does not have the pungent flavour that Western lamb and mutton have. Poultry is also very common in Moroccan and Moun of Tunis food.
The setting for the most sensual first date I've ever had. The bstilla and chicken are superb!
Absolutely LOVE this place for a group outing or a party. The food and ambience are great and very festive.
