disappointing

2 Posted on 07 / 19 / 2013

The restaurant was very close to my hotel, but I did not go there more than once as I found it disapointing. The place looks nice, and the menu has enough vegetarian options. The burger I got did however not taste very nice. The burger itself did not have a good structure, it fell apart, just some cut up vegetables squashed together. The root vegetables under the burger tasted exactly the same as the burger itself, and it was not very favoursome. I tasted very earthy, so I suppose the name of the place is appropriate. I was disappointed though, they could do a lot more with this place.

and now for something completely different?

Well, it was a change from always the same vegetable couscous that's on offer everywhere in Marocco, but still the same vegetables. These however were not overcooked. I had the vegieburger, which was nice, but contained nothing that counts as a replacement for meat, so it wasn't a complete wholesome meal. Maroccans somehow don't have a clue about vegetarian meals. Nice quirky place, friendly staff and not expensive.

Friendly Place, Tasty Food, & Delish Juices

The signs pointing to Earth Cafe bear the unfortunate words, "soup kitchen," but it was the word "vegetarian" that kept me on the quest to finding it. It's a short 5-minute walk off Jemaa El-Fna, and the signs are prominent. Upstairs off the street, the restaurant is divided into two dining rooms, one with a French menu on the wall, the other with an English menu. (The English side is brighter, overlooking the street.)

Vegans won't have a lot to choose from--there was just one vegan dish on offer the day I visited--but vegetarians have three or four choices; omnivores have the whole menu to choose from, which, in total, is really only about eight items.

Tea, fresh juices (carrot, beet, etc.), and coffee are on offer, and bread and delicious olive oil are served to diners before the meal arrives. The staff were very kind and helpful and can offer recommendations for things to do and see in Marrakech.

The sole vegan dish on offer the day I visited was a "veggie burger." The ingredients were seemingly at odds with each other (veggies seasoned with oregano, and finished with coconut and mango sauces?!), but the potato-based "burger" and everything on the plate was scrumptious and filling.

Prices are a bit high for Morocco; 70 dhiram is the going price for a meal here, but in terms of quality and presentation, the prices seem fair.

Pros: Vegan-friendly, vegetarian-friendly, friendly staff
Cons: only one vegan choice, a bit expensive,
