Lunching: El Morocco II

Now that the weather's getting colder, we'll want to put on extra layers to keep us toasty warm. And what better way than by padding your belly with flavourful kosher fare from the world of North Africa? El Morroco II's lunch specials start with hearty soups — practically meals on their own — and offer a main course range from tuna salad to chicken couscous. 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.
