Couscous is a traditional Moroccan dish for lunch on every Friday after coming back from a friday prayer in a mosque. You can eat couscous in almost all restaurants especially in Friday because a lot of them do not serve couscous in the other days because few people ask for it. 

Personally, as a Moroccan, if i do not eat couscous at lunch on Friday, I feel like i am missing something important because it is a part of our Moroccan food traditions.
