RABAT, Morocco – A mild winter lingers in Morocco and in the streets of the old medinas, locals can be found huddling around steaming vats of snail soup. The soup is called “bebouch” in Morocco’s Arabic dialect. The soup is so popular that Abderrahim Idriss has been making a living off of selling bebouch for 25 years.
Idriss owns a snail soup stall on one of the main streets in the old medina of Rabat. As the medina closed down for the night and the last shoppers hurried home, he sipped his batch.
