Moroccan food is rich and tasty. Couscous, tagines, chorba soup … vegetables are in the spotlight in Moroccan cuisine. The mint tea and its dose of sugar pleasantly washed down the meal. And for the most gourmet, oriental pastries are no longer to be presented. For those who prefer healthier desserts, the fruits are delicious. Only point of attention: water. Care should be taken to drink only bottled water and fruit washed in purified water. Otherwise digestive disorders may invite themselves during your stay.
