“Take away dinner for a night in - and dessert”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Only one way into the new medina marketplace with the red petite taxi - under the arch - second side street on the RIGHT. I saw a wide open door and gorgeous heavily decorated tiled walls. I framed my photo and there was its name above the doorway! Perfect. It's hard to find pre-cooked dinner food for takeaway. Left with a baby roasted chicken wrapped in aluminium foil (stuffed with spiced rice). A tray of grilled sardine with an accompaniment of olives. Patient service today. One free savoury pastry to sample :) Change from 100 dh. Further into the more casual market - one the LEFT - another delightful pastry shop. Left with dessert - mini chocolate crepes and almond sprinkled croissants. I left the bees hovering over the honey pastries for another customer! Enjoy.

“You can get anything and everything in these narrow streets”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

This souk is easy walking distance from many hotels and therefore should not be missed. We walked through here after dinner one evening and felt very safe, so definitely worth a walk at any time of day. There are many narrow alleys with a huge selection of anything you might need or want from souvenirs to socks to underwear to luggage. Many designer knock-offs, some of which are quite amusing (Louis Vuitton flip flops?). It is certainly a one stop shop for souvenirs,if you have any cooks in the family get them saffron.

“Relaxed, clean, but...”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

it thus doesn't feel like Morocco.

I'm not over keen on this area. I know, there is no hassle at all, but that's what I don't like! There seems to be so little of the frantic bustle and hustle of other souks in Morocco, even less than in the laid back Old Medina of Casablanca.

For me, this area is far more interesting for the buildings in it, some of which are listed as attractions in their own right on TA, and which are, a couple of them, quite magnificent.

Of course, if in Casablanca for more than a couple of days even, this is a must-visit. If time is short and there's no time to go to the interesting buildings here, then do some shopping at the Old Medina, it's far more authentic and charming.

Reviewed April 28, 2014

Shopping in an authentic atmosphere. Traditional arts crafts, pottery, paints, rugs, mirrors... I love Habous!

“Good walk”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Typical shops, pastries and coffee places. Nice atmosphere and very confortable walk. Did not like that the prices in the merchandise are not posted anywhere
