Tunisia’s Bizerte has been an important maritime and trading center for millennia. To fortify themselves between meals, residents like to eat lablabi.
A Specialty from Bizerte
Lablabi sandwich is a Baguette filled and topped in different ways, and it’s freshly prepared. Vital ingredients are the hot chilly paste Harissa and chickpeas, soaked in the water the night before, then cooked in the morning. Customers then choose additional toppings such as spices, sardines, garlic, tuna, eggs, and olives.
Demand is huge as residents enjoy it to the most. People from neighboring cities such as the capital Tunis may drive an hour just to enjoy the charm of Bizerte and get to taste its popular Lablabi Sandiwch.
