Lablabi is a popular breakfast stew made with chickpeas, broth, tomatoes, and various toppings such as capers, cumin, harissa, coddled eggs. Lablabi is a favorite winter morning breakfast for stevedores in Tunis. Throughout the city it is a morning offering in the small hole-in-the-wall cook shops. The actual soup is very simple and it’s depth of flavor derives from the garnishes you decide to use. As a tourist you will come home wanting lablabi in the morning; that’s how seductive it is.
