A very crusty bread with a deliciously soft inside which is the mainstay of a meal. It is a snack in itself served with simple local produce like fresh tomatoes and gbejniet cheese. Hobz biz Zejt is a crusty roll, or sometimes a Ftira (small ring-shaped bread) which is halved, smeared with ripe tomatoes, and filled with a mixture of tuna, capers, onions and mint and sometimes also with butter beans. Each bar and household has a different version of ingredients in hobz biz-Zejt, but they all make a substantial alternative to a quick lunchtime sandwich.
