Herman 3 Rue Moulay Ismail. Daily 8am–10pm. You may be aware that the term “tajine” correctly refers, like “casserole” and “paella”, not to the food but rather to the vessel in which it is cooked, a heavy ceramic plate crowned with a conical ceramic top in which the contents are steamed slowly over a low light, or more properly, over a kanoun (brazier) of burning charcoal. Should you wish to buy such a vessel, this unassuming little store is the place to do it.

In Morocco, its position was reinforced by the French colonials, who added their own style of café society. Today the cafés perform the role that bars have traditionally had in many Western countries; largely a male preserve, they provide a place to hang out with friends or watch football on TV.
