Cultured Palate: International Dishes from Morocco
One of the most popular street foods in Moroccan cities like Fez and Marrakech is the Spanish-inspired sandwich known as the bocadillo. It’s a sandwich made of crusty bread, layered with tuna, lamb sausage, hard-boiled eggs, onions, and chopped veggies. It’s similar to the French pan bagnat, and can be found everywhere on the streets of Moroccan cities — serving as the perfect on-the-go snack.
While in Spain bocadillos are often made on sliced baguette, in Morocco, it’s common to build the sandwich on khoubz, a traditional bread baked in a clay oven.
