Casablanca, a small, modest eatery on the main strip of Haebangchon, has quite the reputation. Just mention the restaurant's name to any of the HBC residents and they will assure you that no other place cooks up a sandwich as well as owners Wahid and Karim Naciri. These Moroccan brothers have put a great deal of effort into bringing a taste of their homeland to Korea and have done so with great success. Not only is their bread, sourced from a nearby Syrian bakery, a big player here, but their homemade preserved lemon marinade and spices brought all the way from North Africa make these sandwiches seemingly inimitable. You can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches but our favorite is the Lamb Chili which has just the right amount of kick and a generous helping of makooda, deep-fried mashed potatoes, which make for a perfect texture.
