I love Seoul, I love HBC (Haebangcheon), and I love the Naciri brothers’ Casablanca Moroccan Sandwiches (6,000₩). I’ve been coming here for years and this post is long overdue. I used to always get the Naomi (half chicken/half shrimp sandwich), but now they also have shakshuka and a platter (deconstructed sandwich). 


I love Seoul, I love HBC (Haebangcheon), and I love the Naciri brothers’ Casablanca Moroccan Sandwiches (6,000₩). I’ve been coming here for years and this post is long overdue. I used to always get the Naomi (half chicken/half shrimp sandwich), but now they also have shakshuka and a platter (deconstructed sandwich). 

Sandwiches are served with French bread from a Syrian bakery in Itaewon. It’s crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The sandwich comes with lettuce, tomato, olives, dill pickles, and mayonnaise. But two things make the chicken sandwich very special:

1. Makooda, a traditional Moroccan street food, which are fried mashed potatoes. 

2. Lemons are preserved using sous-vide, a French technique that cooks vacuum-sealed food slowly in a bath of temperature-controlled water. Chicken breasts are marinated overnight in the preserved lemons, olive oil, garlic, and a Moroccan spice blend called ras el hanout
