Le Roi Du Couscous, Tunisia

May 22, 2023

Set in Tunisia's former fishing-port city of Monastir, Le Roi Du Couscous is a reliable destination for its namesake of couscous, North Africa's staple recipe. Steps from the Mediterranean Sea, the seafood couscous is the best bet, layered with luscious sea bream; supplement that with savoury octopus stew. Monastir itself is worth visiting for landmarks like the 1,200-year-old ribat where Monty Python's Life of Brian was shot and a mausoleum housing the remains of Tunisia's father of independence.
