Brik, a flaky tuna and egg stuffed pastry is also a must-try when visiting Hammamet. Eat at street vendors for lunch and select a reasonably priced restaurant for dinner.

Spend an afternoon walking this area and stop in for tea at any number of small shops along the way and get acquainted with the neighborhood.
