Though Fes is greatly overlooked as a food destination, it shouldn’t be. Street food in the medina is exotic, delicious and adventurous. Barrels of slimy snails wait to be snatched-up for a mid-afternoon snack, vats of mystery meat swirl in cloudy lard, bowls of glistening, juicy olives sit next to piles of sticky dates. Vibrant sacks full of spices line the streets and perfume the air, walls of carrots, mounds of fresh mint, crates overflowing with oranges and rows of syrupy almond pastries will tempt you as you wander by. It’s perfect for grazing. Butchers displaying unusual meats stand alongside bakers shoveling round, flat loaves of bread (khobz) in and out of huge open-air ovens. It’s truly something you have to see and smell to believe. It’s not just the street food that’s a culinary delight in Fes, but our expert guides know the perfect candlelit riad courtyard restaurants, tucked away cafes and gourmet dining experiences. Fes is made for exploring with your senses.
