If you want to bring back memories of Morocco that are consumed, the first memory that will please many people: the oriental pastries. Moroccan cakes are appreciated by many.

On the price side, you will not be ruined it takes between 25 and 70 DH per kg or between 2.5 euros and 7 euros per kg. The most expensive Moroccan pastries containing almonds.
