I have seen others comment on the mint tea, try this with the homemade sweets, what a great way to end the day. Late dinners are the norm, but the food is all great. Light dinners are better since you eat a large lunch and have tea around 5.
It takes a little time to prepare, but it's lovely. The Algerian cous cous is not spicy, but more fruity than that of her neighbouring countries.
The scarf is only to keep one's hair out of the food.
