Dar Tajine in Fes is one of those restaurants that you get shown once, have an absolutely amazing time and can never find again. Deep in the Medina labyrinth, we entered a doorway and ventured up through darkened flights of stairs. I followed my guide because he ‘knows what’s good’, but under any other circumstances, following a mysterious man up through the shadows of what seems to be a residence is not advisable.
We came to a vast space of hanging textiles, curtains, throws, cushions, all bejeweled and Moroccan. Even further upstairs is the rooftop, but at midday it’s a pool of sweltering lethargy. We stayed downstairs.
Wifi, bathrooms, and the air is cool- all the things travelers like.
And a huge, authentic Moroccan feast; that’s another thing travelers like.
I came to Morocco wanting to try the cuisine, to taste the spices and the different dishes. And like many travelers, I didn’t want to extend myself too far and get sick. Dar Tajine was perfect. It gave us such a spread of savoury delights, of salads, a spiced lentils and smoky vegetables and fresh zesty leaves. We had a lightly battered fish and it was divine. We ate so much, we could not fit in another bite. The food was excellent, it was the most wonderful Moroccan spread I’ve ever had.
If you chance upon this place, I urge you to go. It’s homely, it’s unpretentious, it’s off the beaten track and the food is out of this world.
