    Is Algerian food similar to Moroccan's & Turkish? Spicy.

    Hello Sania

    Yes, I would say there are definite simulates between Moroccan & Algerian Cuisine.

    Personally, I wouldn’t call French food bland.

      Hello Houda!

      I reckon French food is bland compared to Turkish food.

          Cous Cous bil Sukar is nice, I prefer the traditional recipe though.

              salams,

              they arent sweets, theyre pasta dishes

              and muslims arent supposed to drink... so they arent alot of bars in Algeria ...

                    I can answer some.

                    Olive Oil by FAR !!!! Its so popular in Algeria, especially with so much olives growing.

                    Coffee over tea and others. Life doesnt function without coffee twice a day (in the morning and about 2-3).

                    Lamb/Beef: I dont know what the difference is. However, i know Algerians would prefer Sheep (im guessing thats lamb). However, with lack of money its not eaten much.

                    Spicy: definately spicy. We have Harissa to take care of that.

                    PS. There is no rice in Algeria, and its barely ever eaten.

                        olive oil tops them all...

                        not much rice in algeria .... we have other types of carbs/pastas, like tli tli, trida, chakchukha.. i dont noe what theyre called in english if there are in english..

                        i think beef is the most popular of teh meats... but when i went this summer ... some times we had rooster :P

                        cheese is popular, al baqra li tadhak is a popular brand... dont noe how its called in french.... milk is used but not alone... usually with tea or coffee.... yogurt is in algeria... all types...

                        sugar (or sukar in arabic) is def used in tea havent really seen brown sugar there...

                        both coffee (qahwa in arabic) and tea (shay in arabic) are a big thing there... in the morning and again in the afternoon

                        pork is not eaten cause muslims arent allowed to eat pork..

                        hope that helps a little

                            Exuse me Tony ?? we eat rice in Oran Almost once a week . Mom buys either Basmati or American rice (does not stick) she makes it with chicken style rissotto , or she makes it with Prawns and peppers and it tastes like Paella . and sometimes she makes us Chicken brochettes , with plain rice on the side with a tomato sauce to go with it .. There is plenty of rice in Oran Supermarkets and market by the way .

                            [60:8] GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable.

                            [60:9] GOD enjoins you only from befriending those who fight you because of religion, evict you from your homes, and band together with others to banish you. You shall not befriend them. Those who befriend them are the transgressors
