Prices really depend upon which countries you're from outside of Africa whether you're at a regular supermarket or an open market.We visited Algiers September 2019 on our 20th wedding anniversary.Overall food is tainted except for produce.Beggars and scammers everywhere in the capital nonetheless. But we've seen it in London where we live too.As europeans we keep an open mind and are always hesitant not to judge anyone. However after spending 3 weeks in Algiers we were more than ready to return to London.Save your time and money Algeria isn't really worth visiting.

Cheers

Please be advised that these prices are based on the inflated bank rate which is approximately 1 USD to 119 DZD at the moment of this post. However. These prices and the actual currency is based on the parallel market price of 1 USD to 186 DZD as of this post. Please update conversion. The accurate value of money can be found at devisesquare.com
