In the Quartier Habous, the French-built "medina" of Casablanca, this old-school place is famous for its cornes de gazelle (marzipan-filled pastry crescents) and other traditional Moroccan sweets. It's really easy to miss--just a small tile sign (IIRC), and no display window. You have to go in a little tiled alcove and then into the main shop in the back, and you can see the bakers working. (There's also a big oven across the alley from the shop area.) You can buy a box of mixed pastries and cookies, but if you just want one to try, they might give it to you on the house--that's what happened to me. (Then I went back later and bought a ton more!)Recommended for:
