Moroccan cuisine is one of the highlights of the culture with restaurant choices ranging from French cuisine to Vietnamese. There are unique fine dining facilities and many street food options.
Tap water is not potable to most foreigners in Morocco. Bottled water is plentiful and cheap. Moroccans are constantly drinking orange juice and mint tea to re-hydrate.
Tea - Mint tea is offered at most shops and offices. This can be a way to lure shoppers, but it is not mandatory to buy if you have tea.
Coffee - Cafes are a male dominated institution. Fresh cappuccino, espresso, and coffee are served anywhere at any time.
Morocco is a predominantly Muslim country, but it is not without alcohol. Drinking is disapproved in public places and especially near a mosque, but alcohol is available in restaurants, liquor stores, bars, supermarkets, clubs, hotels and discos. Legal restrictions can be strict as driving under the influence is illegal even if you only drank one beer.
Beer - The beers most served are Spéciale Flag (pilsner), Stork (light lager), and the more expensive Casablanca Beer (lager). Heineken is the most readily available imported beer. An average .5 L costs between 1-3 USD.
Wine - Morocco was an important exporter of wine in the colonial era before 1956. The country is now experiencing a revival and expansion of the wine industry as it has the best natural potential for producing quality wines in the region. Common wines from the area include Chellah AOG, Zemmour AOG, Zaër AOG, Zenatta AOG, Sahel AOG.
Liquor - Morocco imports all kinds of alcohol. There is also a local judeo-berber vodka, with mild anise flavor, brewed from figs.
A royal decree from 1967 forbids the sale of alcohol to Muslims, which constitute 98 percent of Morocco's population. Liquor stores and restaurants officially may only sell booze to foreigners, but this law is rarely enforced.
There is no legal drinking age, though there is a rarely enforced purchasing age of 16.
Eating is a social ritual and shared meals are a fundamental part of home life in Morocco. Moroccan cuisine is reputed as some of the best in the world. It has been enhanced by the country's colonial and Arabic influences. Unfortunately, it may be difficult to find authentic Moroccan food in restaurants. As people can make that food at home, most restaurants focus on international fare, such as Chinese, Indian and French cuisine.
Spices frequently used include cayenne, saffron, chilies, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, cumin, paprika, and black pepper. A blend specific to Morocco is ras el hanout, which is a mixture of between 10 and 30 spices. Every spice shop sells it's own unique mix.
Vegetarian Specials & Dining
Many of the staples of Moroccan cuisine are vegetarian and there are vegetarian restaurants to choose from. Most riads serve Moroccan crepes/pancakes for breakfast (just flour, oil and water), or local bread, fresh fruit, jams, fresh orange juice and coffee or mint tea. Couscous is a staple of the diet and may be cooked in animal-based broth so check before dining.
Tipping standards vary widely in Morocco. Most Moroccans usually just round up, leaving a few dirhams on a 150 dirhams dinner bill. Like many things in Africa, more is expected from foreigners. A service charge of 10 percent is often included in the bill.
Many cafes offer great petit déjeuner breakfast deals which include tea or coffee, orange juice (jus d'Orange) and a croissant or bread with marmalade from Dh 10.
There are many options for inexpensive meals on the go in Morocco. Rotisserie chicken with fries and salad are served for around Dh 20; sandwiches from Dh 10; a variety of nuts, steamed broad beans and BBQ corn cobs.
