WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN MOROCCO

What to eat in Morocco? Let us count the ways…. Moroccan food is known for its mouthwatering flavors from honey-coated pastries to saffron-spiced stews.

TAJINE

This lip-smacking slow-cooked stew is an icon of Morocco and gets its name from the funnel-shaped clay dish it's cooked in. Tagine is usually made with beef, lamb or chicken and is traditionally eaten straight from the cooking dish.

COUSCOUS

Known as seksu in Morocco, couscous is a classic staple of the country. These little steamed balls of crushed semolina are best served over a stew of meat and vegetables, with the couscous piled high. Topped with a sweet raisin preserve, or buttermilk if you’re eating Berber-style, couscous is one dish you can’t miss in Morocco.

Packing tips for Morocco

Modest clothing
Morocco is a conservative country and you’ll need to wear modest clothing that covers your shoulders, knees and stomach. It’s best to wear long, loose clothing to beat the heat.

Scarf
A scarf is one of the most useful things to have when you visit Morocco. It keeps the sun and sand off your face, while women can use it to cover their head at religious sites.

Slip-on sandals
It’s custom to take off your shoes when entering homes, hammams and traditional restaurants in Morocco, so bring a pair of comfortable slip-on sandals.

HOW TO TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY IN MOROCCO

Respect the religious rules

Islam is the state religion of Morocco and it's important to respect the rules that forbid non-Muslims from entering sacred areas like mosques and shrines.

Ask before snapping

You could fill up dozens of SD cards with photos when traveling through Morocco’s spectacular landscapes, but it’s important to always ask permission before taking photos of people.

Embrace the art of haggling

Haggling is a big part of Moroccan culture and while there are no set rules, you should only begin haggling if you genuinely want to buy something. Always offer a fair price, and don’t feel obliged to buy if you can’t agree on a price.
