Italian restaurant Circolo Degli Italiani

With italian restaurants it happens a bit the same as with the chinese ones: if you hear italian around you, you're in the right place. People were talking to me a lot about the 'real' place where italian meet to eat and discuss, so at the end, being italian myself, I gave it a try.
The outside is a little bit less than impressive, in fact it looks a lot like a pet prison. On the contrary the interior is quite cozy, with big canvas hanging on the walls and plenty of wine bottles around; the general impression is not luxurious, but rather a familiar place where you feel completely at ease and safe, kind of your grandma's house. The people inside were all quite normal, almost chic. Some ladies who lunch, a group celebrating in the private room, some couples... nothing to complain about that. In fact it makes a perfect choice for groups since there are quite a few round tables. On the menu you find all the italian dishes you may like, from the salads and mozzarella-pomodoro, homemade pastas, meats, fish and pizzas. I tried the burrata, which is a lot like mozzarella but more creamy inside, and it was truly delicious, if somehow a bit expensive, 90 dhs; it makes a perfect dish to share. I couldnt find the most typical pizza, the prosciutto, and I had to order the one with Parma ham on it, that of course becomes always very salty if you cook it, and only people with bad taste ask for, but I gave it a chance: big mistake. The thin crusty base was ok but no ressemblance at all with a pizza napolitana, of course if you haven't tried the good one in Italy on a regular basis, you'll find this one ok, still, the closest one in Casablanca remains the pizza from Da Gino (only the one in Gauthier), and also good the one from Bacco et Venere (also in Gauthier). I'm a big fan of filled pasta so I ordered the ravioli with salmon: they were good but way too much sauce, which probably people like, still I couldnt find any italian flavour on it. Tasty, but very heavy. The dessert was completely my fault, I always ask for tiramisu, and in fact I saw some passing by and looked amazing, just comme il faut, still I wanted to push them and ask for Cassata siciliana. Total dissaster, just a cold melting sweet thing most likely only appreciated by child. The prices are fair and there is wine (glass of red 45 dhs), but my poor choice left me with mixed feelings, I will have to give it another try, and I order better.

Art: Fatima Mazmouz

Gallerie FJ (Fatma Jellal) has organised an exhibition of controversial artist Fatima Mazmouz. Fatima explores the perception of the female human body in its own culture, Islam. One of her major works is the study of her own pregnancy through a series of photographs, always shocking and beautiful at the same time. The shapes, colors, textures, and subject matter provides insight beyond words, offering a window into the past, and a microcosmic view of the issues and experiences that shape so many women in Morocco today.

The Indian: Spanish Tapas in Maarif

Yes we know, weird choice of a name for a place that is 100% spanish ambiance and tapas in the heart of Maarif in Casablanca. Dont let that put you down and give it a chance; the owners are the old managers of famous La Cocina, and they created something very special in this reduced space that reminds us very much of any place in Barcelona in which you hear spanish, you eat spanish and you act spanish (meaning you are loud), but of course you smoke american and you pay in dirhams :) . It is perfect for an easy afterwork or for a secret love-date, since it is still quite unknown. The lighting is good, the music does not disturb you and the prices are fair. We tried the tortilla de patatas and it was truly genuine, just like my grandma does it, not like the spanish omelette that they try to do in Morocco or France adding some species for no purpose at all that only kill the original flavour. We also loved the chicken croquetas, and specially the patatas bravas... very very good. For pig lovers there's all you need, spanish ham and also deep fried Morcilla (boudin noir/pig's blood) mmmm delicious. We arrived a bit early but the place really came to life around 20h, and when we left at 22 there was no place for a needle.

Price: from 50 dhs to 200 dhs (how much can you eat/drink?)

Dance: Work is all the time in progress

Spend a pleasant evening in Casablanca watching the eclectic art of the group "work is all the time in progress" a joint venture of the brothers Atbane, Younes and Zouhir, plus newcomer Aziz Nadif; inspired and educated under the master choreographer Khalid Benghrib.
Their art is a mix of contemporary dance and music always in search of new forms of expression. They arise questions about the social problems of becoming an artist in Morocco, challenging our minds but always with a humoristic touch.

Brunch alert: Rick's Cafe

So you're looking for the best Sunday brunch in Casablanca, but at the same time you think that Rick's cafe its too obvious a choice, and on top of everything you think that the whole thing must be fake since the film was not shot in Morocco...Open your mind. Ricks cafè is already and institution here in Casablanca, in fact they just celebrated its 10th anniversary not long ago; the deco its superb, the waiters are spot on and about the best you can find in Morocco, and the food is always fresh and -to Casablanca standarts- not expensive. So when my american friend rang me to propose me Sunday brunch I was like: eehh...ok...let's play the tourist. How wrong I was, the place is spectacular and super chill-out, some moroccan couples, some foreigners, everyone casual chic (there is actually a dress code to follow); none of those over-excited people with camera... actually I was the only one taking photos.
The brunch is reserved for the first floor, that is way cooler than the lower floor. On the brunch menu there's pretty much everything you are dreaming of right now: eggs benedict, omelettes with whatever ingredients you may like, ham, cheeses (parmesano, roqueford, gouda, etc), grilled potatoes with some kind of beef strogonoff, tagliatelle with seafood sauce...shall I continue? and then of course you've got the fresh orange juice 'a volonte', milk with cacao, cafe, tea, cereals, homemade yogurt, strawberry cake, pain au chocolat, french toast with maple syrup...well let`s say that the choice is larger than your appetite, whatever your weight may be. And all that at 160 dirhams, yes there's no mistake, 160 dhs for a king's brunch, so I guess...I'll see u there next Sunday.
