Kamal Laftimi and his brother Oussama are pretty much the responsibles of the trendy, creative fresh wave of young Marrakchis taking over the very old and traditional Médina. Owner of Caf’é des épices and Le Jardin, he embarked on a third opening, NOMAD, which intents to create a lighter and innovative cuisine based on well know Moroccan dishes and ingredients. For this adventure, they joined forces with Sebastien de Gzell, a natural born nomade, architect and restaurant designer, who was in charge of giving that gorgeous french-magrebi look with a hint of Scandinavian style.
November. How did that happen?.
I have no idea but I´m sort of happy because it was one of those hard-to-bite months where due to a medical treatment I had zero energy nor willing to do a thingy. But in the other hand it wasn’t that bad either, hey, look at that gorgeous landscape which is just about 15 minutes by car from our apartment.
Back in July when I spent some days in Macau & Hong Kong, I made some time for coffee get together with Ludy from Gogirlzz . We had met just before Regis and I moved from Macau, so we never had the opportunity to know each other at a deeper level. After our coffee time that went terribly well, we agreed to spend more time together and work on something that we could share with you in this space.
Such a busy month! Lost of discoveries, visits from afar and new secret garden in Marrakech.
Solo walks in the Mellah neighborhood brought a fantastic Beldi style brekky, which has jumped to my ultimate faves & must-do in the ochre city. Tip: Search for old, small and crowded juice shops serving (aside fresh juices) all-day breakfast fare like khili eggs. While there also ask for msemen, atay & avocado juice.
