Chaouni – A taste of Morocco

After having lived in Morocco for one year, once in a while I crave Moroccan food. Not long ago, I passed outside this place and was totally transported into its warm and hospitable culture. The place itself is very simple, as well as the decor, but the food is totally worth it: very big portions at a very affordable price. 

Once you enter, you will see a cabinet of food from which you can choose directly. You will find everything from salads, vegetables, couscous, tajine, grilled fish… The owner, who is originally Moroccan from the northern blue town of Chefchaouen, will be more than welcome to help you out. 

The warmth of the staff is what really adds value to the delicious cuisine. They are always ready to share a conversation with you, and share more about their customs and traditions. You really feel as if you are at home.

You cannot leave the place without trying the Moroccan tea (green tea prepared with spearmint leaves and sugar). Actually, the last time I visited the place, the owner offered to treat us: “the tea is on the house”, he told us. I had never managed to drink some real Moroccan tea before I found this place. 

Besaha! (in other words, enjoy your meal!).
