La Bodega

Bodega, Restaurant, Moroccan, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Fast Food, Street Food
La Bodega is a little treasure hidden in Tangier. While on the outside it has a Moroccan look, the interior is like stepping back in time to America in the ’50s. Frames of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix and many more hang from walls, the music is tasteful and you can even have dinner. They offer amazingly delicious dishes, so it’s certainly a place you might not want to leave.
