The Moroccan five is a collection of local foods served at basically every restaurant in Morocco. Quality varies from place to place, but you can count on these items being on the menu.
1) Shawarma – Yogurt Marinated chicken grilled on a skewer. Served with lettuce, tomato, onion and sauce all rolled up and grilled in pita bread.

2)Pizza – not what your used to, but always a safe choice. Pizza here is generally a small single person affair, and can be served with seafood, veggies, and dozens of other variations, but sorry, no pepperoni.
