In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
Marrakech may not be right in your neighborhood, but the food alone will make you want to start planning a trip there. If you poke around the souks long enough, a five-minute walk from the Jemaa el-Fna will lead you to the Cafe des Épices. Painted a dusty red, Cafe des Épices stands tall above the rest of the spice market square. A trip up the very narrow staircase leads you out to a lovely terrace with views of the whole souk.
Of course you could order another tagine, but the sandwiches are a nice change of pace.
This one is packed with fresh tuna, briny olives, and juicy tomatoes. The freshly made flatbreads are also stuffed with peppers, parsley, capers, and a few lettuce leaves. They are filling and substantial, perfect to sustain you through an afternoon of wandering around in the dusty heat, and don't forget to order a pot of Moroccan mint tea.
