Eat like a local…Take a break predictability of restaurant food and eat on the hoof. Getting hungry in one of the country’s major cities? Why not visit the food market, grab some meat or fish, and seek out one of the many local cafés competing to cook it for you? After a few minutes, and fewer dirhams, you have a feast consisting of your now-cooked foods, plus salads, bread, and tongue-tingling soda. Move a step closer to living like a local and invest in a Tanjia clay pot. Take this to the food market, present it to the butcher, and he’ll wordlessly fill it with meat, followed by a handful of spices and vegetables. All you have to do is locate to the nearest wood-fired public bath and hand the pot to the furnace stoker, where he’ll place it in the embers used to heat the water. Return for a few hours later to find your fragrant meal bubbling, succulent. And ready to melt in your mouth. Want delicious authentic meat dishes but don’t want to buy your own ingredients? Head for the nearest gas station, where chances are you’ll find a butcher’s shop on its forecourt, and beside it an unassuming café that makes the best meat skewers, cutlets, and stews for miles around.
