Today’s post is about the food in in Casablanca & Marrakech. I love Moroccan Food but the food in there didn’t meet my expectation. I went to several popular restaurants but the food was mostly average. I felt the food lacked proper spices. Maybe, I am used to fusion cuisine where they mix Moroccan spices with other Middle Eastern spices. In every restaurant I went to, Tajin Meat with Black Plums (طاجن لحم بالبرقوق) was the best dish we ordered. Moreover, wherever restaurant we went to, the meat was always tender & soft. Even though the food was kind of disappointing to me, the design & decoration of each restaurant were truly fascinating. The walls were carved and colored by hands. You can feel that you are in Morocco. Considering, Kuwaitis love having their pictures taken & posting them on BB, Facebook, instagram, etc. You will never be disappointed. You will have your share of photo sessions like I did. 😛
Anyway, the first Moroccan restaurant we went to was Al-Mounia in Casablanca. The atmosphere and the interior design were great. I loved them. When I got in, I really felt I was in Morocco. They have indoor and outdoor areas. We arrived for dinner so they were only serving indoors. I am not sure when do they open the outdoors area. Good thing we arrived around 7pm because at 9pm the restaurant was FULL. So if you plan to have a late dinner, you might want to reserve a table before going there. We ordered several dishes. Some were good and some were average. And Ladies, prepare your cameras to have photo sessions indoors & outdoors. 😛
This is Al-Mounia’s Address in Casablanca:
95, Rue Du Prince Moulay Abdellah
Tel: 05 22 22 26 69
The second Moroccan restaurant I went to in Casablanca was La Fibule. The view of the restaurant as you can see in the two pictures (first & third) is truly beautiful. Great for photo sessions indoors & outdoors. You know, you can give “a far way look” at the sea… like you don’t know someone is taking your picture & then post it on your BB or FB lol 😛 Anyways, the food was average. I believe there is a seafood restaurant called La Mer right next to it that is supposed to be good but we never went to it.
This is the address of La Fibule in Casablanca:
Blvd de la Corniche, Phare El-Hank, Tel: 05 22 36 06 41
In Marrakech, our driver took us to a Moroccan restaurant. Unfortunately I don’t remember its name. The interior design was really nice but the food was average. We also went to Cafe De La Poste & La Arabe Cafe. The food was delicious in Cafe De La Poste but I didn’t like it at La Arabe Cafe. Finally we went to the highly rated french restaurant called Bo-Zin. The food was good.
Did you know the Tchaba the designer tea brand was actually Moroccan? They also have a store in Dubai. I visited their main & only store in Marrakech. It’s located in Résidence Atlas at Mr Amine El Baroudi Avenue Mohammed VI
Overall, Even though I love Moroccan food, I can say the food was mostly average but in every Moroccan restaurant we went to the interior designer was lovely. I believe everyone is worth a visit for the photo sessions purposes so ladies, prepare your poses & cameras lol 😛
So who wants a Taxi? 😛
Going to post more about the trip. Stay Tuned! 🙂
