    We visited Morocco for our 1st wedding anniversary and it opened my eyes to cous cous and since then, I love it! I remember going on a 1/2 day city tour near where we were staying and that’s when I also tried tangine kefta – goodness me, what a delight for the tastebuds! I’m now salivating reading this post, all I have had for the past couple of weeks is Mie Gorang and now I want to spice things up lol. #feetdotravel

      Haha, Angie I know the feeling VERY well! I totally lived on Mi Goreng throughout our time on Borneo – I was craving for something different at the end of the trip too! Cous Cous is very different in Morocco to what we are used to at home – it’s so so good!

    Man, another food post to get me salivating! I was generally surprised in Morocco how common couscous and tagines were, you get them everywhere! Kefta were delicious and brochettes were a nice change of pace occasionally. I also liked the Berber eggs which are cooked similar to a tagine but added some variety. As I was on a tour, our leader bought some fish at the market and we got it cooked up like you said, surprisingly eating with our hands which was different. Definitely covered Moroccan cuisine well Lex.

      Thanks David, we didn’t cook ourselves which was a shame, as I think it would have been another fascinating way to experience some ingredients that we don’t get to see back home. Sounds like you had a great food experience too!

    You should put a disclaimer at the beginning of the article “Do not read when hungry!”. The food looks amazing, especially the tagine kefta and the fish. I wanted already to visit Morocco for its beautiful places, but now I want to see it even more to taste this good-looking food! Great article!

    Your food posts are killing me – I should stop reading it while I am hungry. The Tagine Kefta looks soooo delicious, I wish I could have it in front of me right now. Morocco is on our never ending bucket list, hopefully we can cross it off soon. Thank you for sharing!

    tried all of these and you are so right – they’re delicious. The grilled fish in Essaouira was legit the best fish I’ve ever tasted ever!

    Food looks absolutely amazing! Would love to try it all especially the lamb dishes. I was just watching a travel show where they showcased making the Tagine Kefta. Would love to visit Morocco one day just seems very intriguing.

    You had me at mint tea! I might have a slight tea addiction and this sounds amazing! Would love to visit here one day and sample all this yummy goodness!

    I haven’t been to Morocco yet, but I’ve eaten at Morocco restaurants before, and I really love the food! I LOVE that flackey chicken pastry thing that they dust with cinnamon and powdered sugar! That must be one of the top 10 best foods I’ve ever had! All this looks soooo good. And I love that sweet mint tea too!

    Although I’m not a fan of mint tea the food look’s great and there’s a nice selection. Should keep me almost full for at least one day 🙂

        Love the mint tea! Okay, love everything in this post. Since we’ve tried all of them at the Moroccan restaurants around us, maybe we should actually try them IN Morocco. I think we have a plan! 🙂

    Probably my favourite cuisine! I was introduced to Moroccan food when I lived in France nearly 30 years ago and always find a Moroccan restaurant when we are in France! Have yet to venture to Morocco itself though!

    Everything looks delicious! It’s not too hard to find cous cous here at home, but I’m not sure how authentic it is and how the taste profile compares with cous cous in Morocco. I would love to visit Morocco one day, for so many reasons, but one is definitely the food. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Diana – they steam it in special utensils which gives it a distinct texture and taste. It’s so very filling! Hope you get to visit soon!

    I should have probably eaten before reading this as my stomach is growling at me. Everyone knows couscous, in this you are right, but I have to say I never tried any of the other dishes (eventhough I had a boyfriend once who was half from Morocco). I think if the mint tea wasnt super sweet it would be similar as to what we have in Estonia and the skewers would be a big hit with me too! Yummy

    The way you’ve described every dish seems interesting. The food looks spectacular. Of course being vegetarians we would look out for vegetarian variants.

    Omg. I almost didn’t want to read this post because Moroccan food is my ultimate weakness, and I really REALLY want to try some authentic food in person (we just need to get to Morocco, dang it). Now I’m hungry. These traditional dishes sound and look so good! 🙂 I know exactly what I need to order whenever we make it there.

    Thanks for sharing!
