Habbouz Tunisian Cuisine, a small, family-owned eatery located just off the I-17 in north Central Phoenix, bills itself as Phoenix’s first and only Tunisian restaurant. Luckily, there’s more to recommend this no-frills eatery than pure novelty. Owner and chef Nabiha delivers spicy, fragrant dishes like ajja merguez, a lamb sausage and egg dish served in a mildly spicy tomato and harissa sauce. Kebabs, made from a chili-spliced blend of minced lamb and beef, are fall-apart tender and juicy. You shouldn’t miss the house couscous, which is steamed to a light, fluffy finish and spiked with harissa hot sauce. Chef Nabiha often offers complimentary desserts to guests, including a wonderfully flaky, honey-and-pistachio baklawa.
