Le Trou Au Mur

Gastronomy in Central Souqs

Colourful fusions of traditional Moroccan and contemporary European transcend from the decor to the plate in this classy but laidback eatery. Feast on mechoui (slow-roasted lamb) in the riad dining room or indulge with a mac ‘n’ cheese on the rooftop terrace. The cherchma (spiced pulses with couscous) and berkoukesh (couscous in tomato sauce) starters are a rare treat in such a setting, as they are usually only prepared in locals’ homes.
