DESTINATIONS tunisia tunis Dining Calcutta


Hailed as one of the best Indian restaurants in the country, Calcutta serves quality food and is open late even during the month of Ramadan. You can't go wrong with the Tandoori Chicken or the Biryani Rice.


Tunisian cuisine, much like Tunisian culture, is a blend of culinary traditions from various parts of the world, from indigenous nomadic populations to Arabic, French, Turkish and Italian influences. Some of the dishes you are likely to find on a menu are "tajin" (frittata-style dish), "couscous" (not just as a garnish, but a full dish with meat and vegetables), "shakshouka" (ratatouille prepared with eggs and tomatoes) and much more. Tunisian food tends to be spicier than that of other North African countries, so make sure to ask for your desired level of heat prior to ordering.
