Chez Chegrouni – Marrakech

October 20th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Chez Chegrouni - Marrakech

If you are lookig for a break in the Medina, perhaps after doing some haggling in the souz, head to Chez Chegrouni and grab a window terrace seat (both on the ground floor and above) to take a break from the action and enjoy the spectacle of the market in front of you. The service is fast and the fare is Moroccan. Apparently, this place is known for its tagines. The lemon, olive and chicken tagine was rich and delicious. The kefte with egg and tomato tagine was like a meatball steamed omelette – still good but we had no idea what to expect. The meal of course comes with the ubiquitous large rounds of bread. The glasses of fresh squeezed orange juice I suspect had been watered down with overly water which I found a little overpowering. Plus at 8DH a pop, compared to the 3 DH glasses of fresh-squeezed orange juice you can get just a few steps away – well there is no comparison.

The food is relatively inexpensive – most tagines were 20-25 DH. They also serve couscous at around the same price. The service is fast and efficient (they actually ask you to write down your own order). The seating is no frills.’

Chez Chegrouni
The patio faces the square along the row of restaurants near the orange juice carts
Cost: Inexpensive
Verdict: Nothing fancy but the tagines are quite good, if you can grab a seat on the patio it is a good place to people watch

Cost: Average
Verdict: Average but worth trying the tagine
