Sidi Bou Said
It a small town just 20km from Tunis. It’s known for being painted white and blue, and we had the privilege of visiting a mansion that historically belonged to Baron D’Erlanger, a German baron who came to Tunisia and built a house here because he fell in love with the country. We weren't allowed to take pictures inside.
There was plenty of yummy salad, inspired by both the North African and the Mediterranean, which seems to be what Tunisia food is all about. And then several different sorts of main dish including salted lamb roast, a beef stew of some persuasion and slow-cooked chicken pieces. Plus cous cous, rice and more. Foodie heaven! The desserts, luckily, were on the smaller side, but very cute, just the right amount of sweet and absolutely sensational. The wine was excellent too, and was home-grown in Tunisia.
