I wrote a couple of years ago about food in Morocco, which on a previous trip we had found tasty, and exotic, though I have to say that after a week we’d become ever so slightly ‘tagined-out’.
On our more recent trip, we were in the country for a month, so how did we find the food this time?
On the Exodus walking trip, the food was very healthy yet tasty and attractively presented. Not bad when the support team didn’t even have a kitchen in which to prepare ingredients. There were lots of interesting salads for lunch, tinned fish, rice or pasta, fresh bread, sometimes eggs, fruit and mint tea.
It was nearly all fresh, and locally sourced. The snacks, a mixture of nuts and dates, were nutritious as well as really good to eat.
During the two weeks between Exodus trips, we sometimes bought bread and bananas for lunch. I love Moroccan bread!
Meals at Dar Tourkia were superb, the highlight being Fatima’s lemon tart.
The food at Les Terrasses De L’atlas was also fantastic, and served in a gorgeous setting.
My favourite was Kefta Mkaouara.
The food in Agadir was more varied, and sometimes we simply reverted to pizza.
On the cycling trip the food was also very good, with a lot of attention paid to hygiene.
