Enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of Marrakech at night
Meet a guide in the evening at your centrally-located Marrakech hotel, then travel to the district of Mellah for the first stop of the evening, a café known for it’s Moroccan pancakes. Watch the chef prepare several varieties, including msemen and harcha, then sample the locally-beloved treats.
Continue to a nearby spice market to learn the aromatic building blocks of Moroccan cuisine, and sample warm bread fresh from a traditional oven. Hear stories about the old fashioned sweets that are served at weddings and religious festivities, then step into a pastry shop to try the flavorful desserts.
Walk into the bustling stalls of Jemaa el-Fnaa to sample olives in the small olive souk and see how a méchoui maker prepares the spit-roasted whole lamb or sheep in a pit oven (and taste a few morsels of the flavorful meat). Sample harira soup and dates at one of the square’s small restaurants, then dig into a traditional terra cotta pot of tangia, a thick, local stew. Finish the night with a cup of spiced tea in the square before drop-off at your hotel.
The tour wasn't exactly as described and was a little pricey for the experience. That having been said, we did try a variety of foods at the different stalls (some that we may have overlooked otherwise). The food was good and we didn't get sick.
Unser Guide hat uns im Riad abgeholt und wir sind zu Fuss durch spannende Orte in Marrakesch gelaufen. Er gab uns interessante Informationen zu Kultur und Leben der Marokkaner. In einer Gewürzkooperative haben viel über Gewürze, Oele und Pflanzen erfahren. Beim Platz Djemaa el Fna und den dahinterliegenden Suks haben wir viel gesehen. Zum Schluss haben wir noch ganz viel verschiedene Speisen gegessen bei Aija eines der ersten Strassenrestaurants dem Platz. Es war fantastisch!
