Casa Hassan: Don't miss the mint tea
Chefchouen offers less of an international cuisine than anywhere I've ever been, and it's fantastic to see somewhere that only cooks locally. You can find the typical Moroccan cuisines in Chefchouen, including my favorite, Tajine, which is described best as a meat or poultry (sometimes veggies are used instead of meat) casserole with vegetables and couscous. You can also find the 'berber whiskey' which is really mint tea, a highly sugary tea that is served with a few fistfuls of mint crammed into the glass. Mint is so cheap in Morocco, you can buy a backpack full for a dollar. Another dish that is safe for those vegetarians would be couscous, often served with vegetables that are in season.

There was one restaurant or bakery in Chefchaouen i visited daily, it is called Chez Aziz and it is just under the medina... Officially it is a bakery but they make very good pizza and milk shakes!!
Anywhere: Don't miss the cheap bread
In Chaouen, as in most of Morocco, you can find a bunch of very cheap, simple food in the medinas. In Chaouen, you can find a few little places in the main square that sell orange juice, locally squeezed and very delicious. Mint tea, hot, sugary, and relaxing. But the best and cheapest thing is bread rounds as I call them. They are just 1 inch think circular pieces of bread, baked in small fire ovens, and costing very little in the way of money. They are normally about 12-15 inches in diameter and are very tasty.Related to:
