Nice and local feeling - Edit

I liked that They have more than just tagine- also soup and lots of different extras. They offer to mix up a full dinner for you - and they cook different things each day so stay open minded.

Vibrant restaurant with vegan choices - Edit

The only vegan that I met while traveling in Morocco was a waitress at Bab Ssour. The menu doesn't list which items are vegan, but she told me all of my options. What a relief to speak with someone who actually understands my needs and to feel confident in the veganosity of my meal.

This is a very fun and lively restaurant aimed at tourists, so it's always filled with people from all over the world, but with excellent Moroccan cuisine. The people working there speak many languages and I are wonderfully welcoming. Great prices. I kept going back!

Over the course of a few visits I had the vegetable tagine, moroccan salad, and bread dipped in the lentil stew, white bean stew, chickpeas, and eggplant dip. Veggie couscous was available one of the days I went and was excellent.

Left much to wish - Edit

Quite fascinating that the day that I went to have a dinner at this restaurant, they had minimal options for vegans. There were no beans, lentils or chickpeas, neither there were eggplants or zucchini. I had to choose between veg tagine, Moroccan soup and tomato+pepper dip. Meat eaters seemed to enjoy their meals though...

Pros: Unlimited amount of bread and dips

Cons: Only few options from the menu were available

Great option - Edit

Very good food at cheap prices (I had 2 things at 12dh per item). Provided free olives, a huge piece of bread, and 2 dips. Nice staff. Vegan items aren't marked, need to ask them.

Delicious Home-Cooking - Edit

A fabulous small eatery, 1 minute from the main plaza, (Plaza Uta el-Hammam) where all the restaurants are. Follow the road around after Pizza Haji, Paloma Restaurant, easy to find. If you are tired of the usual vegetable couscous and vegetable tangine (although available) this is the place. Well decorated and friendly ambience, this is Moroccan homecooking made from the heart and inexpensive. There are meat dishes served but a good number of vegetarian dishes, various beans, lentils, soups, green peppers and tomatos, zucchini salads, all the regular Moroccan salads. If you want a particular vegetable available in the market, just ask Sahid and he will do his best. Sahid said if there was greater demand for more vegetarian dishes, he would love to expand the vegetarian menu, he said that he has some great ideas on vegetarian dishes, he said this is more what Moroccans eat at home. This is more homecooking than restaurant food. Do try the yoghurt deserts, one with date syrup and carob. For Japanese people, Sahid speaks fluent Japanese. Friday lunch is Cousous only.
