Sweet Seller

Several small vehicles lined up along the corners of the square each evening, they present a myriad of forms of traditional cakes and Moroccan sweets both home-made and the product of specialist bakeries.

Many of these cakes are holidays specialities and all are best accompanied by tea.  They contain sugars, spices, honey, chocolate, Sugar, Fruit and Other as well as flour, starches, almonds dry fruits and other nuts.

Famous varieties include: ‘Fakkas’ meaning hatcher, ‘Ghriba’ meaning strange, ‘keab ghzal’ meaning Gazelles horn.

A mixed assortment typically costs around 30 dirhams (around UK £2.50) and the quality is generally very high with the mobile stalls subject to food hygiene inspections.

The perfect dessert after your barbecue dinner!
