Royal contrasts, culinary traditions and sights
In Casablanca there is more to see than the stark contrasts which first hit visitors when they arrive. It is a city sitting on the edge of modernity, European in style yet still pulled into Moroccan history. Architecture is a curious yet alluring mix between Art Deco, Hispanic, and Moorish styles. It is Morocco’s finance capital and supports a population of around 3 million people. There are two faces Casablanca, the commercial side of office buildings and business districts, wide boulevards that carry the names of Moroccan kings and world leaders and there is the innate side, the medina with its winding streets and buzzing marketplaces. Michel Pinseau, a French architect, designed the Hassan II Mosque, one of the city’s most glorified monuments. In Casablanca, architecture overpowers the list of must-see sights, so you better bring your camera!
Moroccan cuisine is one with many flavours and influences from outside cultures. It is a mix of French, Arab, Mediterranean, Moorish and Berber. The key to Moroccan cooking is the spice. The most common ones are cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, ginger, pepper, paprika, anise, sesame, coriander, parsley and mint. Main dishes that are available at any restaurant serving local foods are couscous, pastilla (meat pie), tajine (stew with lamb and seasonal fruits and vegetables), tanjia, and harira (chickpea and lentil soup). Moroccan culinary traditions dominate in the city but you can also find Vietnamese, French, Italian and many other cuisine delights at restaurants around. For those who simply must have fast food, pizza and burgers are in the city also.
