I spent some time in Morocco during Ramadan and fell in love with a fried, honey-covered cookie called chebakia (or shebakia) that is served frequently then. I've done a little searching online for a store or restaurant in the District or metro area that might have them with no luck so far. Anyone know where I might fnd these amazing, crave-worthy sweets?
I just ate some last night. A friend made them for me. You might want to try lebanese butcher or halalco in Falls Church, va

There is a Moroccan restaurant in Clarendon (I think it's called Taste of Morocco) where if you ask, they will make it for you. I recommend that you ask AHEAD of your visit. The owner is a really nice guy and was more than happy to do it. I went once and asked the same question you have - where can I buy chebekia in DC. He didn't know of anywhere, but he said during Ramadan, the restuarant makes it. Hope this helps!
