During this 3 day quick come-and-go trip to Morocco, I finally managed to make a run every day. I only had 30 mins, so I did interval training.
I had the chance to taste the first strawberries of the new season, mainly shipping for the fresh market. They are sooo good looking and tasty. Oh, I love my job! Many of my colleagues are saturated with strawberries, but somehow, I am still fascinated by these fruits. In fact, before working here, I didn't really care about strawberries, but here, over time, I got into it.
On this evening pic, you can see my favourite place in Asilah, a restaurant called Casa Garcia. It's owned by a Spanish man. They are specialized in seafood, and there's not really a menu, everything is shown in the glass-doored fridge that is available to eat. Everything is fresh from the sea. It's that type of restaurant that is exquisite cuisine, but not expensive, not a posh place. I got the insider tip from a colleague working there for years before.
I ordered mixed salad - somehow simple vegetable salad taste extremely joyful, salad de fruit de mer, swordfish, icecream, and tropical fruit salad. I asked about the side dish, and my worry was justified, so I asked to exchange the pile of french fries to steamed vegetables. And all this wonder for the same cost as a workday lunch in Austria.
What I find interesting in Morocco's cuisine, is that very healthy, fresh, organic, low calorie food is on offer in the same way as, fat rich, heavy food. For example, Taijine, which is steamed chicken/beef with vegetables dish, and heavy in fat grilled ribs with french fries are similar price items on the menu. In Austria, and Hungary, I only find low calorie items in special restaurants, or as special "fitness" menu items. In Morocco, somehow by tradition it is part of the menu. And most of the raw material is fresh, organic, non-processed.
As for my weekly new habit, brushing my teeth after breakfast, it's in. I had to do it in a rush, in the toilet of the hotel lobby, but it's in.
