Beautiful Kairouan , besides being famous for its Grand Mosque and rugs, is also proud of its 'makrough', a pastry stuffed with dates, almonds, dipped in honey or nuts and absolutely exquisite. The makrough you can buy everywhere, but the best bakery is called Segni and is inside the medina. The place looks like something out of a French film from the 30s. Naturally, in the Segni Bakery makrough are a little more expensive, but have a different flavor. It is also a pleasure to walk around the store and choose cakes as if they were objects of art and take them for eating after-dinner wrapped in a neat little box at your hotel.
