We don’t have an Africa board do we @robert? Anyway, anybody have Marrakech recs? I have a friend going there and he specifically asked: can you ask your “food board" where to eat?
Dusk at Djemma el-Fnaa is a wonderful spectacle, and offers street food galore to try.
Moroccan cuisine: Prepare to eat lots of couscous (often in tagine) and bestilla, on heavy rotation. Bint ar-rimad (spelling?) is a local specialty. End the meal with a high pour of hot mint tea.
Lolol is there any place you haven’t been? Seriously where are your travel weak spots?!?
Now we have an Africa board.
Judging by my cookbooks, there’s way more to Moroccan cuisine(s) than the usual tourist dishes, but I wouldn’t know where to start looking for the places that serve them.
I’ve never been but on a text thread an acquaintance provided these recommendation to another friends ask
- Dar Yacout for dinner in the Medina
- Al Fassia is a great restaurant for dinner
- Le Fondouk for dinner
- le jardin for lunch in the Medina
- La Mamounia for drinks and the croque monsieur
Thinking about going for 3 days in march is that enough time?
The Atlas Mountains beckon nearby. Definitely spend one night in a kasbah, if you are there. #RockThatKasbah
I haven’t been in a few years, but here are a few favorites
La Cour des Lions
Le Petit Cornichon
Al Fassia Guéliz
Dar Yacout (Some people say overrated, but a fun experience)
Café Des Épices
Chez Lamine Hadj Mustapha Jemaa El Fna (I usually get the entire head)
