I don’t know why Coke cans and bottles in other countries fascinate me so.
Oh HI, and there’s the lovely Karima. I miss you.
I’m an olive fiend. One of many things that made me a happy camper are the olive starters at practically every restaurant you go to in Tangier. We stopped at Restaurant La Merveille near the oceanside strip for a lunch break after a long day of interviewing, and had some delish kebaabs and chicken tagines. I love chicken skewers, so I’m biasedly telling you that was my favorite.
Another starter, eggplant mix I think
Yes, this is a salad.
I was too optimistic in thinking I’d find the menus online, but most of the dishes are about 35 to 45 Moroccan dirhams, which is about $4-$6 an entree!
One of our afternoons in Morocco was well-spent at the relaxing and celebrated Café Hafa in the La Marshan quarters. It has a stunning view of the blue ocean, and has been serving the same delightful mint tea since 1921, which we think has a hint of ginger and honey. We’ve had some pretty phenomenal mint tea here already, but this tops them for sure.
I knew some celebs had frequented this place as well, but didn’t realize how many drank the mint tea at this very spot until I read more into it — it’s seen the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, The Beatles, Tennessee Williams, and Paul Bowles to name a few.
