Camel Souk is a place that has a soul animated by traditions and customs
Behind this boutique-restaurant, we find Vincent Jaquet, a lover of Morocco and travel, to whom we already owe the authentic Inara Camp in the Agafay desert
The designer district Sidi Ghanem has recently had a new address: Camel Souk. Travel and heritage are the breadcrumb trail of this concept which takes us through African countries and eras. Ancient pieces and works of art coexist there, creating an almost museum-like atmosphere. We thus discover ancient pieces from the south of Morocco, in particular jars from the Tata region, more recent pottery from Tamegroute, but also sublime boujad rugs, kilims typical of Khemisset or even old chests and trunks. Other beautiful finds take us across borders with an impressive collection of masks from the Congo, a camel luggage rack from Mauritania ingeniously transformed into a table, Dogon scales from Mali and many other nuggets sublimated by time, vintage to the four corners of the cradle of humanity.
Another asset of the store: its restaurant which blends into the decor. Continuing with the concept, Camel Souk's menu offers healthy, unadorned cuisine, evolving according to seasonal products and the inspirations of chef Fayçal, to whom we owe the FZ Factory culinary project. Detox juice, Lebanese salad, tchoukchouka and goat cheese toast, homemade falafels, toasted sandwiches, vegan burger and many other suggestions drawn from the kitchens of the world make up slate. We couldn't dream of a more exotic setting for our lunch break in Sidi Ghanem, since we can also sit down under the Berber tent hoisted at the back of the shop. An unusual experience to be absolutely tested!
