Brik's & Briouats
Small pastries, traditional in Tunisia and Morocco. Both are made of Warkha pastry, also called Ouarka' - which is almost transparently thin, like filo. Brik's are round in shape, popular fillings being egg or tuna. Briouats come in three shapes - cylinders, squares and triangles - and are sweet; although in the Middle-Eastern tradition, fillings containing a mixture of rice, icing sugar, orange flower water and almonds are served as starters.
