savor: Tunisia/ Tunis

EZZITANI
rue Jemma Zitouna
Tunis

Under the vaulted roofs of the medina, this is one of the medina’s best traditional (read male) cafés. Linger over a perfect café turc dashed with eau de fleur d’oranger (orange-flower water) among the packed ruckus of animated conversations that swirl around you as a steady parade of goods, shoppers, and dawdling, wide-eyed tourists pass on the crowded lane outside the café.
To even better the moment: call for a shisha and let the afternoon dissipates among the sweet smoke and slow gurgle of the waterpipe.
Follow rue Jemma Zitouna up and you’ll find: the 8th-century Great Mosque.
Follow rue Jemma Zitouna down: out of the medina and into the French-built ville nouvelle.
