We try Moroccan Street Food in Casablanca Morocco

We try Moroccan Street Food in Casablanca Morocco

February 25, 2020 30 By William Morgan


this is my first time and they probably can tell we are raising voyagers Heather, Bradey,
Alexa, and Chloe. This week we arrived to our 38th country of Morocco and have
only 24 hours to explore the beautiful city of Casablanca. In today’s video we
tour the largest mosque in Africa, try out some local Moroccan food and then
ultimately begin our road trip to chefchaouen where we have a small run-in with
local traffic laws. Chloe what do you want to do to the pigeons? Chase them! Chloe where are we? today is our first full day in
Casablanca and we are now headed to the hassan ii mosque which is the number one
thing to see in Casablanca as far as I know and it’s proving to be a very long
walk you tired Alexa so it’s probably about a
2 kilometer walk probably a little bit too far with kids but when we ask to get
a taxi they recommend if we just walk so we decided we’d give it a shot and we’ll
probably grab attacks in the way back we made it it’s probably only 10:30 in the morning
and it is cooking out here as soon as you step onto the square because of how
reflective it is you just bake I mean this square just goes on absolutely
forever and it’s pretty crazy but it is definitely inspiring all right do you think it’s for a giant
no Chloe who do you think lives in there Oh someone really tall so we didn’t do
much research on Casablanca we were only gonna be here for about 24 hours before
we head to chef chuan but we made it to this mosque and there’s lots of places
for the girls to kind of run around and play so all in all we’re having a great
time so the hassan ii mosque is the largest
mosque in all of Africa and it is the third largest mosque in the entire world
insane again good job Chloe
so last night we got in really late but I went out to grab some dinner because we
hadn’t eaten yet and I walked past this restaurant they kind of ushered me in
kind of sat me down and instantly put a plate of hot food right in front of me
it was rather kind of funny there was nothing there or a menu kind of sat me
down and gave me food and gave me drinks and it was amazing
so here headed back to that same place staying here last night and I tried
these hot places I had to learn what they’re really hot you had onions and
then you break off a piece of the bread it’s a little bit too hot essentially
the bread so I feel like I’m not quite getting
this right there’s no over where we’re not gonna so you’re refusing a bread and
keeping up the and this is my first time so that was absolutely delicious
I’d be happy eating that every single day in my life super simple to make it
was cool to watch them to make it and I definitely want to get one of those clay
pots before we leave Morocco to try to be able to put that same dish at home
but definitely a lot of fun and very good I lost five kilometres by myself there’s a lot of steps we have a
tendency of cooking places that involve a lot of steps I don’t know why that
always happens and I’m afraid it’s gonna happen in chefchaouen as well
at our next place but it’s a year headed to the rooftop this is our view looking
out the balcony yeah this is what you get for about $35
a night in Morocco he you’re just so tired so we decided to stop at a little
coffee shop so that we could get some coffee and have a little bit of a rest
were still pretty jet-lagged from yesterday so we’re trying to kind of
enjoy our time here without getting too tired. Brady thinks he can speak French but he can’t so he tried to order and French
could they just he ended up getting a three latte them that’s okay this will
drink it I’m sure fairly Chloe as being quite proper
that’s this fancy little restaurant when she finds something funny she loves
to repeat it so we are now in route from Casablanca
to fetch one and it’s about a four hour drive so right now we are in the car
about half way there we’ve been in the car for about two
hours we just stopped and had a little bit of coffee and water and orange juice
to kind of give us a little energy to finish this drive I got my first ticket I was speeding and
it was a it was a speed trap I was going the speed limit they turned a corner out
of nowhere just dropped suddenly and of course there was a
police officer there and pulled me over he was very nice about it but he pulled me over and had to pay on the spot which is as an American is very hilarious
because he just payed in cash and they put the cash in the pocket but they gave
me a ticket and we’re official about it but culturally for us that’s kind of
hilarious but I tend to always get a ticket when we rent a car because it’s
very challenging to understand local Drive of driving laws not many aside
from speed or ever followed by locals and all of the signs are in Arabic so it
can be a little challenging but we’re so we rented a car just for the
flexibility of things and because figuring out bus rides from Casablanca
to chefchaouen was a little bit challenging and they were very long bus
rides that have figured out the Train so we rented the car out of convenience but don’t
rent a car in Morocco yes it’s crazy out in the country it’s perfectly fine
normal but Casablanca was just absolutely nuts there were several times
when we were driving inside of Casablanca that were pretty terrifying
and there’s these roundabouts where they have like six different lanes of traffic
and you’re supposed to cut through and all the roads were closed where we’re
supposed to go it’s pretty crazy and a little a little bit outside of our
comfort zone but we are happy to be Jeremy on the country now so apparently hitchhiking is very common
here everywhere you go down the road you’ll see lots of people just waiting
to catch a ride even kids on their way home from school it seems like they’re
just standing kind of out in the middle of nowhere by the road with their hand
out waiting to catch a ride it’s kind of crazy the rest of the drive was somewhat
uneventful as we enjoyed our road trip across Morocco soon we arrived to the
most spectacular views of the blue city of chefchaouen in our next video we
explore this ancient city as we attempt to navigate the small blue streets and
continue to try out the local food if you enjoyed this video don’t forget to
