Lablabi is the ultimate Tunisian comfort food, served up piping hot in home kitchens and countless stalls throughout the countryside. This hearty, warming dish consists of chick peas in a garlic and cumin-infused broth, served over small pieces of crusty bread and garnished with a decadent runny egg. Dali’s deluxe version features capers and tuna (or optionally, cracked green olives for vegetarians), along with his homemade harissa (tunisian hot sauce), olive oil, parsley and a lemon wedge.
(vegetarian & gluten-free options available)
BONUS! Add a “Doigt de Fatima” – a crispy Tunisian “spring roll'” of light brik pastry wrapped around a delicious spiced chicken and potato filling +$2
A veteran Toronto restaurateur, Dali Chehimi’s storied career has seen him working alongside luminary chefs like Greg Couillard at iconic restaurants such as Sassafraz, Sarkis and Avec, as well as running Casbah, an innovative pop-up food stall specializing in Tunisian fare.
