Sur le Pouce (On the Thumb), more similar to a canteen than a traditional restaurant offers healthy and generously served food without having to 'explode the wallet'.

Even if the place is situated behind the Grands Boulevards, in the middle of Belsunce neighbourhood, it attracts a lot of people. On Fridays it can be crowded for lunch. In the evening it is generally much quieter.

Anyway, the service is fast and you may be asked to share your table with other guests, it's part of the charm.

The menu has clearly a Tunisian influence, although some dishes have undergone a strong Western integration. For example, the tajine is mainly composed of an assortment of rice and vegetables. On the contrary the Chorba or the meat with sauce are very typical.

The owners are Muslims, they do not serve alcohol. Because of their very tolerant sense of religion and their undeniable sense of commerce, they agree that you bring your own bottle. Allah is great and wishes you to have a good meal!
