DESTINATIONS morocco rabat Dining Dinarjat


For an exclusive experience, Dinarjat (close to Rue des Consuls) is the place to go. Here you can dine between columns and mosaic tiles in a 1908-constructed building. The menu choices are limited but excellent, and represent the essence of authentic Moroccan cuisine.


Moroccan food is – in many ways, like the country itself – rich in flavors, aromas, and colours. Its scents and sweet-and-sour combinations are famous around the world. A meal requires all senses and is complemented by the scents of saffron, cumin, and coriander. You can taste the international star everywhere: couscous, or rather a whole range of couscous. Try a pastilla: a delicate pie that wonderfully combines finely chopped pigeon, parsley, hard-boiled egg, almonds, and honey. To top it off, it is sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. The famous tajine (meat, chicken or fish stew) accompanied by vegetables and fruits, is traditionally cooked in a covered terracotta dish.
