If there’s one thing in Marrakech we not only did a lot of, but also enjoyed tremendously, it was eating and drinking. Every meal seemed as colourful and tasty as the next and, wow, what a discovery Moroccan wine turned out to be!
We also did a cooking class, hopefully enabling us to later reproduce some of those wonderful dishes in our own kitchen. And when I do, I promise to tell you how it went and possibly share the recipes with you as well :)
I’m quite happy with this blog post’s title (pat on shoulder) and, I promise, if you stick to my Marrakech ‘food map’, your tastebuds and your tummies will be both excited and very, very satisfied!
Kick off your day with a lovely cup of coffee or traditional Moroccan tea on Kashba Cafe’s awesome rooftop. They have food too (vegetarian and vegan included) and, more importantly, for the blog speices anyway, they’ve got free WIFI! So sit back, sip your coffee, enjoy the view and/or (depending on your multitasking skills) update your Facebook status so your friends back home know what a fantastic time you’re having ;)
After shopping, sightseeing or whatever else you’ve enjoyed in Marrakech, have lunch at Dar Moha. Looks like nada from the outside, but stunning on the inside! Lush, green plants, a nice pool, lovely colours everywhere, great service and, first and foremost, great food (the wine wasn’t too shabby either – ask for a bottle of Cuvée du Président white).
Alternatively make your own lunch. And if you have the chance, I urge you to do a cooking class at Riad Chorfa. We did and it was great! Making food in their beautiful courtyard was an experience in itself, and the food turned out pretty good too. And on the subject of riads, if, or should I say when, you decide to book a trip to Marrakech, here’s a friendly trip: Make sure you stay in a rihad (a traditional Moroccan house) and not in one of those big, soulless hotels you find in the outskirts of town.
To finish off an already flavoursome day, there’s only one thing to do: Have dinner at Bô-Zin! It’s hip, it’s trendy, it’s cool and it’s calm. Ot as I like to call it, soothing sophistication. This is the spot where to eat and drink until you can eat or drink no more.
Because, I swear, from starter(s) and main(s), to dessert(s) and drink(s), it was one gastronomic explosion after another! My mouth was exhausted by the end of it, but still I wanted more. And when the fooding is over, there’s plenty of space, both outside and inside, where you can lounge the night away, sip your wine and people watch (check out the trendy Moroccans). I’ve got five words for you: You. Have. To. Go. There.
Hungry yet? Well, what are you waiting for? Get on a plane to Morocco already!
