"Tourist Restaurants" Morocco Restaurant Tip by traveldave
Morocco Restaurants: 130 reviews and 149 photos
When I traveled to Morocco, I went on a guided tour in which meals were included. This meant that we ate every night in tourist restaurants that cater mainly to group tours and independent travelers to a lesser extent. These restaurants feature local food and a cultural show that might include such forms of entertainment as singing, dancing, and acrobatic performances. In addition, many have a photographer who will take a picture that guests can purchase as a souvenir.
Favorite Dish: The featured dish at these restaurants tends to be couscous, which we had almost every night. It is made with a base of steamed grain which is covered with chicken, lamb, and vegetables. It is brought to the table on a large platter, and each diner helps himself to his portion, usually by hand. So much is served that there is generally some left over, even when four or five people share.
Another popular Moroccan dish served at these restaurants is tajine. This is a type of beef or lamb stew that simmers for hours in an earthenware dish covered with a unique cone-shaped lid (also called a tajine).
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
