after our time spent at the mosque in casablanca, we had one of our favorite meals ever at a place josh found called la sqala. i think half the credit of calling it our favorite meal goes to the delicious food and also the great service, and the other reason why it was a favorite was because we had such a fun time around the table together before, during and after our meal. the kids were such rockstars at trying all the different foods we ordered and we were laughing so hard at a disappearing napkin game samson started at the table. often times, dining out with three small kids can be crazy and i don’t usually love it because it can be such an ordeal with our family (i did write this post if you’re interested on tips and tricks for eating out with littles).
i’ll share down below what food we loved by the food photos, but you guys, this meal kind of changed my life!
the kids had fun playing on the cannons outside the restaurant before and after our meal.
the entrance is pretty cool, and so is that handsome man holding a sleeping baby!
okay, so we ordered the beef tajine, a moroccan salad, some briouates, pastillas, and brochettes. i am not 100% certain which is which in the photos, but the ones filled with chicken that have powdered sugar and cinnamon on top were truly out of this world (we ended up ordering another round of just those! lol.) also, thanks to everyone who helped call out what those are named on my instagram, although it sounds like they have a few different names and also a few different ways of spelling? i’m not totally sure, but if anyone knows where i can find a similar dish in NYC, please help a girl out and let me know in the comments. i am such a broken record but truly, they were out of this world amazing.
if only i could reach through this stupid computer screen and eat that thing right now!
also worth calling out were these donuts we ordered. we originally just got one to all share with a plate of crepes and churros, but the donut was so good we had to order a few more. gosh, i am very hungry as i am writing this and it’s not helping.
that’s it for my day in morocco recap! we definitely hope to make it back someday (i’m looking at you, marrakech), but feeling so thankful we got to have a day to do a bit of it on this trip. until then, i’ll just keep dreaming of all that yummy food. :)
