La Boule Rouge restaurant in Paris' 9th arrondissement is a Tunisian restaurant that inspires love among its adherents. Rather than recreating a souk, this charming and gracious restaurant is decorated in tones of the Sahara with sand-coloured walls and desert-themed fresco, tiled floors, traditional wooden seating and what seems like miles of white table linens. Raymond Haddad welcomes you with a smile.
Specialties of the house -- and there are many -- include both impeccable grilled or roast fish, often served whole, Moroccan tapas, couscous including couscous loubia and bkaila, as well as a tuna brick that keeps customers happy. Everything is kosher, too, and vegetarians adore the place.
