It's a novelty, and the guys are super nice. the snails are good, but snail-y tasting, which is code for "don't stray too far from a bathroom you know and trust." If you have strong stomach, go for it. If you don't, let your friend try it instead.

This is what you do - you stop in the medina by the snail stand and get given a bowl of cooked snails. Enjoy with some mint tea

If you don't like snails (escargots), then don't come here. It's a quick and easy takeaway where the snails are cooked very quickly in a small wok and then offered to you in a small bowl. Watching the staff prepare them is a real treat. The flavours were great - I loved it!

The snails were delicious, and the broth they were boiled in was good too! It was certainly an interesting experience.

Takeaway food with a difference. Fill up a bowl of fresh cooked smnails and eat by the roadside like the locals
