Arab food, although very different from the western one, is a true harmony of flavors. Moroccan cuisine is a feast of taste, colors and spices! Don’t be picky because you might miss some delicious and tasty dishes. We then explain what to eat in Marrakech, all the dishes and unmissable.
Maybe, in the menu you could read about pigeon dishes or maybe you could turn your nose in front of a plate of chicken, almonds sugar and cinnamon, but if with the pigeon just can’t do it, do not give up other dishes that will be an experience of crazy taste.
If we can give you advice on what to eat in Marrakech , then in addition to the classics we want to recommend something less known that we also tasted for the first time and that surprised us.
A classic, at the top of the list of typical dishes of Marrakech, is fragrant, tasty and never spicy. The classic one includes pieces of vegetables (carrots, zucchini, potatoes) cut coarsely, in thick slices and chicken.
The most famous variants are prepared with beef or lamb.
Couscous often accompanies other dishes and is simply served with a vegetable broth.
This term indicates the classic ceramic conical pot in which the cooking of chicken, beef, lamb or even pigeon takes place.
The Tajines not to be renounced are:
Lemon and olive chicken tajine
Tajinkefta or meatballs with sauce with egg white placed in the center
Pastillia | besstila
This is one of the dishes absolutely to eat in Marrakech: Delicious puff pastry pie with chicken, pigeon or squid inside, particularly seasoned and outside almond grains, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar (an incredible sweet-salty contrast!)
Fillo dough filled with rice mixed with spinach, meat or cheese often presented in the form of small triangles or rolls.
Sweet sesame and completely covered in honey, calories to die for but delicious!
Do you think it trivial? You are wrong because it will surprise you… a real treat based on water, dry yeast, semolina, wheat and salt. The shape of the khobz is that of a donut and when it is hot is really good! Try it also with jam and a very delicate frothy local cheese. And don’t forget to give a bite to crepes, they are not exactly Moroccan but… very good, nothing to add!
