Opening soon: the Moroccan Culinary Arts Museum

On September 21st, the Moroccan Culinary Arts Museum will open its doors in "soft opening" mode, as the official launch is planned for October 2019.
This museum, which aims to preserve and transmit the ancestral moroccan cuisine, is located in a palace dating back to the 15th century, right in the Médina and just a few steps away from the Bahia Palace. The place remained in ruins for decades and has recently been taken by investors, who have completely renovated it in the purest moroccan art.
Enjoy below the teaser video of the museum.

Goodbye immigration police forms !

People travelling from and to airports in Morocco will no longer be required to fill immigration police forms, starting today ! This decision has been published by the National Security Head Office, as now all customs are fully equipped with digital passports checking and datas collected will be automatically sent to its database. Formalities are now much quicker !

Spot on the "Salama" restaurant

Every month, we will share with you a secret... starting with this newsletter, where we are presenting you the Salama restaurant, a true find !

Located just off Djema El Fna square, it spreads over 3 level crowned by a panoramic terrace overlooking the Atlas mountains and giving a 360° view of the Medina. The menu offers Moroccan cuisine including delights such as a Monkfish Tagine or a a Lamb shank with caramelized tomatoes and poached pears... mouthwatering !

This is the perfect place for a tea break, sipping a cocktail of a good Moroccan wine or a comforting meal after hours of walking and shopping in the souks !
