There’s only one place in Singapore where you can find Tunisian cuisine. It’s at a place called The Wejs (pronounced Wedges) along Buona Vista’s Rochester Park. Get stuck into delicious brik (more on these later), harissa, chakchouka, Tunisian-Mediterranean tapas, wraps and platters. Being nestled amongst the jungle foliage in the warren to the west of the Buona Vista subway station makes al fresco dining or sitting in the Berber tent-like canopy an exotic affair.
The Wejs specialises in the Tunisian delicacy known as brik, a crispy, fried pastry somewhat similar to a samosa, filled with all manner of ingredients. At Wejs, the Brik Special is stuffed with marinated minced beef and egg, served in one large piece that’s great for sharing. That’s just the beginning at this unique restaurant hidden amongst the trees down Rochester Park in Buona Vista. Adventurous Singapore diners flock to The Wejs to enjoy North African salads and chicken couscous Tunis, a traditional Tunisian dish with chicken, tangy tomato, carrot, cucumber and potato strips. It’s typical of the simple, rustic and delicious recipes used in the kitchen.
The Wejs’ events and offers calendar is a packed one, too, with great deals peppering the week. Watch out for their Mediterranean Tunisian Tapas Nights, where you can sample a fusion of Spanish and Tunisian culinary traditions at great prices. With a unique offering, gorgeous premises, and long dining tables laid out under a tent that is reminiscent of a sub-Saharan dwelling, The Wejs’ Rochester Park, Buona Vista location is the perfect spot for a private party in Singapore.
