The great Anthony Bourdain left his mark everywhere he went. When his death was announced to the world in June 2018, media throughout the globe chimed in and listed all the great things he had done for their respective city, town, province, country. Whereas before, tourists would shy away from exotic foods, thanks to him, travellers now go the extra mile to find and try local bites. With this in mind, here are all the restaurants Bourdain visited and the dishes he tasted when he shot Anthony Bourdain Tangier, Morocco for his show, Parts Unknown Season 1 Episode 5 (originally aired May 12, 2013). These dishes are worth trying as you go trough your Morocco 14 days itinerary.
At Saveur de Poisson, Anthony Bourdain had a Tagine of baby shark, calamari and monk fish with fresh mountain spinach. He also had grilled whole turbot and baby shark kebabs. To start his meal, he was served fresh olives, walnuts and bread. He had a “pulpy puree of figs, raisins, strawberries”, herbs and spices for his beverage (supposedly, making him more “manly”). His dessert came in the form of strawberries, pine nuts and honey.
As Anthony Bourdain described Café Baba in Parts Unknown Tangier: it “has attracted foreign dignitaries, rock stars, aristocrats and artists since it opened in 1943”. Across the street, Anthony Bourdain had an omelet from a hole-in-the-wall street food vendor.
DISH – Jben
WHAT IS IT?
The iconic jben or Moroccan goat cheese is often wrapped in
palm leaves and is a favorite among the Berbers.
In a previous episode of Parts Unknown, Anthony Bourdain mentioned he is not much of a fan of salads, At Andalus, he seemed relieved and delighted to also have beef liver kebabs grilled over charcoal, swordfish and orange roughy in his meal.
