Moroccan Home Cooking, At The New Al Fassia.
For some good home cooking Moroccan style you should try the relatively inexpensive Al Fassia restaurant here in Marrakech. Having established its self as one of the most popular traditional Moroccan restaurants with both locals and tourists, Al Fassia has decided to expand and has created a second purpose built restaurant on the outskirts of town to service its already over subscribed clientele.
Al Fassia is always a popular choice for those in the know about where to eat in Marrakech, and having enjoyed the old restaurant in Guiliez many times we decided to try the newly opened branch for ourselves. The decor was kept simple with large relaxing banquettes to sit on and low traditional tables the restaurant itself is built over two floors and has a pleasant view of the old city walls on the second floor.
I personally love the salad starter. For anyone who isn’t accustomed to Moroccan cuisine this is a fantastic chance to try out the many variations on salads that Moroccan cuisine has to offer. The tajines are always exemplary. Some more complicated dishes do need to be ordered in advance, which is a shame if like me you don’t think to plan ahead.
But I do advise you to book in advance as the new restaurant was as full as the old one ever was yesterday evening.
