24h in Marrakech, Where to Eat and Shop – Morocco

20 décembre 2015 § 4 Commentaires

City of oranges, rugs, vibrant colors, I first discovered this city through the movie « The Man who knew too much » by Alfred Hitchcock where you can have a glimpse of the hustle-bustle of the souks and the mythic Jema El Fna place. Endless inspiration for many designers and artists, Marrakesh can also be tiring for those like me who do not like to bargain.Marrakesh Sugarsheet Spices Souk place des epices maroc morocco food vegan

Food is extremely generous: from sweet dates to citrus fruit, you have a variety of delicacies to excite your palate. Sweet tooth like me are in heaven: I had cornes de gazelle every day, and the best ones I had were from Amandine and Pâtisserie des princes. Dates and nougat ice cream can be found at Pâtisserie des princes for only 12 drh. Marrakech Sugarsheet Tajines Morocco Food Maroc Vegan Gluten FreeMarrakech Sugarsheet Travel pomegranate

For admiring the pink-orange shade sunset, go to the terrass of Café des Epices or Nomad, two restaurants owned by the same person as le Jardin. Menu at Café des Epices is quite simple with avocado sandwiches, while Nomad proposes tajines and couscous in a modern way. Their date pudding is worth the trip on its own. Gooey, spongy, sweet, it was the best dessert I had so far. I tried to bake my own date pudding back in France but I did not reach that perfect texture yet.

If you only had 24h: have breakfast at place Jema El Fna where the juice sellers will squeeze you the freshest orange-grapefruit, then stroll in the souks where your ability to bargain will be challenged. Gift ideas are abounding: babouches (pointy leather slippers), candles, cutlery and the sweet pastries made with almond and honey.. and so much more!Marrakesh Sugarsheet souk shopping morocco maroc Marrakesh Sugarsheet souk babouches shopping gift ideas morocco marocMarrakesh Sugarsheet Rugs morocco souk shopping

If you have a nice flight company, bring back a rug. They are so beautiful, I felt really bad leaving Marrakesh without one. If you do not like to bargain, go to Chabi-chic, a contemporary & cool gift store located on the first floor of the Nomad.Marrakesh Sugarsheet Olive souk medina shopping morocco marocMarrakesh Sugarsheet Travel babouche leather slipper loafer shopping morocco

Before sunset, go to my favorite Place des Epices where you will see women grinding henné, sip a mint tea like the Moroccans and enjoy the sunset.

Le Jardin – Marrakech

17 décembre 2015 § 3 Commentaires

In the hustle bustle of the souk, hides Le Jardin, a fusion moroccan restaurant with secret terrass. Tajines, burgers, couscous for food and avocado and dates milk for the drinks. The interior is designed by a parisian architect and all the vegetables come from their private garden. By night, le Jardin becomes a candle-lit heaven. Le jardin marrakech Sugarsheet Maroc avocado juice veganLe Jardin Marrakech Maroc morocco Sugarsheet tajine veganLe Jardin Marrakech Sugarsheet Maroc Medina Morocco interiorLe Jardin Marrakech Sugarsheet medina maroc morocco Marrakesh
