Street Food Tasting Tour in Marrakech

This immersive street food tasting tour of Marrakech focuses on the culinary secrets that make Moroccan food so tasty. You will led by a private guide and can try as much, or as little as you want. 

Walk into the souqs, and first find some coconut Macaroons. Popular with children, this will get the taste buds going. We head to Mechoui Alley. Here you find vendors producing slow-roasted lamb. You can ask for a nuss (half) or rubb (quarter) kilo. They will serve it with freshly-baked bread, cumin, salt and olives. Perfect for your lunch. 

Next, head to some of the finest pastry shops in the Medina. You will try Briwate and Ghriyba – both local delicacies. We also love for you to also try a few dates. These are usually grown across the other side of the Atlas. These are also turned into date jam and syrups.

We then explore the many olive stalls, tasting the best products and trying a little olive oil too. Next is Rahba Kedima Square where you delve into the many spice stalls and learn about the varieties used in Moroccan cookery. It’s now time for tea, and where better than Maison Arabe. This riad is known as the mecca for foodies. You will tuck into Msemmen – pancakes served with honey and cheese. 

Emerge at the square try a traditional soup – Harira – which is usually eaten when Ramadan finishes. We’ll pass some more grisly stalls serving Rass Mbekher (steamed sheep’s head with cumin) and Berbouche (snail soup). It’s worth a look at least!
