The cuisine of Larache is based on the typical products of the area, because eating locally is easy when the quality of the ingredients is first-class. A town turned toward the sea, both geographically and historically, the locally caught fish and seafood are some of the main ingredients of its cuisine. The surrounding vegetable gardens also bring a continuous flow of seasonal products that will assuredly seduce the palates of visitors to the town.
Part of the attractiveness of the city and its gastronomy is in the popular and unpretentious character of its restaurants. Larache does not have large, star-rated establishments, but instead has smaller kitchens based on the quality of their products.
The day can start with a breakfast in the town square or near the garden of the Hesperides. At noon, at the market, you can savour a freshly squeezed orange juice. Lunch, by the fishing port, has to be freshly caught fish that is cooked over a charcoal grill.
Your snack should be in front of a beautiful view of the sea that you can get from a balcony over the Atlantic, with tea or coffee accompanied by local pastries. Dinner will be served in the restaurants of the corniche, and fish will once again be the star of the dish.
