an evening in marrakesh• 15 comments •
With some time to kill before Le Foundouk opened for dinner, Alex and I wandered around and found a Berber pharmacy/spice store where some friendly young guys lured us in for a demonstration. We left with a bag of Moroccan 35 spice mix, orange blossom perfume oil, and plenty of free samples. La Terrasse des épices provided us with some pre-dinner beverages: a non-alcoholic Mojito and drink called "Le Printemps de Marrakesh" which consisted of orange juice, cane sugar, and mint syrup. We finally made our way to Le Foundouk after the sun set; it was the prettiest restaurant I've ever been to (way too dark to take decent photos) and the food was perfect. I think it's my new favourite restaurant. There's always something beautiful around every corner in Marrakesh.
