Fresh fish is abundant in Asilah. It has become a place that we visit relatively frequently. We always take visitors there and often we go just to spend a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Asilah is quiet and calm, pretty and relaxing.
When we visit there, we enjoy eating at Yali, which is full of fresh fish. Yali is located on the East side of the medina, just outside the wall. The entire street is lined with outdoor cafes that all look the same, so it might be hard to choose one. Our taxi driver steered us to Yali. He told us they had the best food and the lowest prices.
They have all types of Moroccan dishes there, but we usually choose the fish. We sit outdoors just about any time of year, although they do have a small dining room above the actual kitchen.
Yali is a simple place, but perfect for lunch. These photos are representative of just one meal we had there and it cost about $12. It’s a veritable feast for just a little money. Try Yali when you visit Asilah. When you visit us, we will definitely take you there.
