Lunching: El Morocco II

Now that the weather's getting colder, we'll want to put on extra layers to keep us toasty warm.

Best to order mint tea at the end instead of their coffee, but only if you like it sweet. The Arabian Nights-like setting is a riot of carpets, wrought ironwork, pillows and miniature leather camels.
