Located in North Africa and bordering the Atlantic Ocean between Morocco and Mauritania, the former Spanish colony Western Sahara remains a “case of unfinished decolonization.” It is recognized by the United Nations as a non-self-governing territory.

Although Western Sahara is a sparsely populated territory, traditional dishes such as meifrisa are an important part of custom. Meifrisa is prepared for celebrations and holidays and comprises lamb or camel meat fried with onions and garlic and allowed to simmer until the meat falls from the bone. The stew is served over unleavened bread.—Leska Tomash
