Benis Patisserie: Pastry Heaven
After reading in Royal Air Maroc’s in-flight magazine that Benis Patisserie is reputed to serve the best pastries in Morocco, I was on a mission to locate this paradise.
Located in the depths of Quartier Habous I actually found it pretty easily and wandered inside to see what it was all about.
Inside there was a queue of about 10 people, all buying pastries, bastilla and biscuits by the kilogram.
Favorite Dish: I started to feel slightly embarrassed about just wanting to buy a small selection, but before I knew it, a friendly gentleman had pushed me to the front of the queue and it was my turn!!
I ended up with the famed hornes des gazelles (hoping they didn’t contain actually gazelle!!), marzipan bikkies (called something amandes) and a few other small treats. And I can tell you that yes; these were the best I tasted on my trip to Morocco!!

Dar Beida Restaurant: Dont miss this atmosphere, food and show!
I loved the place and the music even more
It has it all!
Great moroccan atmosphere, made by the dim light from the morrocan lamps hanging from the scarf decorated ceiling.
Then there is the liveband, which i loved spiced up with additional singers and a bellydancer.
The entire furniture with the low round table and cushion chairs does it even coazier.
Its not even expensive!
Favorite Dish: Couscous with 7 vegetables and the complimentary olives served with bread.
Le Beyrouth: Good Lebanese Cuisine
Le Beyrouth is a small Lebanese restaurant serving good honest mezze and other Middle Eastern delights. Prices are quite reasonable.
Favorite Dish: Order a selection of humous, baba ghanouj, warak einab, etc. and a cold beer.
Cannot recall: Gotta have the couscous
I had the pleasure of enjoying this meal twice. Once at a restaurant and again while performing some community service at a hospital. The restaurant experience was prototypical restaurant (they are mostly the same in my opinion) with utensils, wine, beer, etc. The hospital one would have been different, though they decided to serve with utensils at the last minute. Not to mention that the meal came in a community bowl that you served yourself out of. Imagine no utensils on that one.
Favorite Dish: The chicken couscous, of course! I prefer poultry to red meat, especially overseas because you always see chickens but you rarely see cattle. Go figure on that one.

Drop in one of numerous coffee shops where you'll be offered flavoured mint tea and delicious pastry.
Favorite Dish: The national dish of Morocco is cous-cous, it looks like a kind of porridge. Sometimes it takes several hours to cook it.

He certainly selected a terrific spot, all the traditional foods, the classic mint tea, lovely waitresses, cous cous, the works. We had the entire place to ourselves, eating in a private room, sitting on the floor.
Surprisingly, the cost of the meal, including Ali, was very modestly priced. Ali must be taking the picture.
Wish we had taken a picture of the waitress, she was stunning. Worth at least 3 camels and 7 rugs.
Le Jardin Restaurant/Pizzeria: Pizza by the sea ...
It's pretty amazing that you can find pizza almost anywhere in the world. I've eaten it is Macedonia and Cambodia -- and it is obviously available in Casablanca, Morocco.
