Marrakech recs?

We don’t have an Africa board do we @robert? Anyway, anybody have Marrakech recs? I have a friend going there and he specifically asked: can you ask your “food board" where to eat?

Dusk at Djemma el-Fnaa is a wonderful spectacle, and offers street food galore to try.

Moroccan cuisine: Prepare to eat lots of couscous (often in tagine) and bestilla, on heavy rotation. Bint ar-rimad (spelling?) is a local specialty. End the meal with a high pour of hot mint tea.

Now we have an Africa board.

Judging by my cookbooks, there’s way more to Moroccan cuisine(s) than the usual tourist dishes, but I wouldn’t know where to start looking for the places that serve them.

I’ve never been but on a text thread an acquaintance provided these recommendation to another friends ask

  • Dar Yacout for dinner in the Medina
  • Al Fassia is a great restaurant for dinner
  • Le Fondouk for dinner
  • le jardin for lunch in the Medina
  • La Mamounia for drinks and the croque monsieur

Anyone aside from @J_L been? @J_L aside from food any to do recs?

Thinking about going for 3 days in march is that enough time?

The Atlas Mountains beckon nearby. Definitely spend one night in a kasbah, if you are there. #RockThatKasbah
