If you search for a place which unites great food with traditional cultural events, then you should try the Café Clock. You can find this place in two locations: Fez and Marrakesh. Probably it is one of the restaurants with the most Instagram posts. But the reason for that is not only the camel burger (we struggled a while if we really should try.. but it was good) or the rest of the menu but also that they engage in events like the weekly storytelling session. It is a tradition which is part of UNESCO's heritage. The great storytelling master Ahmed Ezzarghani tells stories from 1001 nights like fairytales. Even though we did not understand him, the body language was impressing and you could feel the intensity of the tale, which he was narrating. After he presents the ending of his story with big gestures and mimics a young Morrocan student translate the story into English.

Must Try: We can not only recommend the coffee but also the tasty smoothies. You have to try the one with dates.
