The Street Snails of Chefchaouen

Every once and a while you have to make a calculated risk. In this case that risk is consuming dozens of land mollusks (snails) that have been slowly simmering in a greenish brown opaque sludge for an unknown amount of time. For around $.30 a bowl, this isn’t a monetary gamble. This, my friends, is a game of diarrhea roulette. This is not a game for the light-hearted or weak-stomached. Luckily we had professional food gamblers on hand. We throw caution to the wind, and sometimes that caution is joined with bodily fluids as well. This time we are lucky and our boldness pays off with tasty food at an almost unfair price.
