I could walk around in the souk for hours! But after all the shopping you get hungry…
That’s why I love cafés in the souk. Café Des Epices is one of them. When you’re feet are tired of walking, your mouth is dry because of all the bargaining and you’re craving a fresh and healthy salad – Café Des Epices is the place to be. Located at the small square ‘Rabha Qdima’ in the middle of the souk, this is the perfect place for a small break. You can choose to have your breakfast, lunch or dinner here – either on the terrace, inside on the first floor or on the rooftop. Each spot offers a great view over the busy market.
Whenever I am in Morocco, my daily menu exists from a hamburger, fries and a mojito. This time I wanted something healthy (a coke to keep balance :)) and picked the Caesar salad. This was seriously one of the best caesar salads I had in Morocco. The combination of the delicious topping, the crispy bread and the fresh salad was just perfect and exactly how a caesar salad should be like.
Besides the food quality and service, interior is something that I find the most important when having lunch or dinner somewhere. I love how Café Des Epices makes you feel like you’re in Marrakech even more. The walls, the typical berber cushions and the furniture are a great combo. With the Mexican music playing, you almost get the feeling as if you’re in Mexico
So, if you want to start your day, pause your day or end your day in the souk – don’t forget to try out the Caesar salad at Café Des Epices!
