Food and Drinks

When it comes to food, Morocco won’t disappoint visitors. The most famous dish is the Tagine, a spicy meat and vegetable stew, simmered for several hours in a conical clay pot. It’s usually served with couscous, which are granules made from semolina grains.

Although Morocco is a Muslim country, you can still buy alcohol if you’re over 18 and it’s available in restaurants and supermarkets. Don’t forget to try the ubiquitous mint tea, which is served by most sellers inside the souks.
